Wild Edible & Medicinal Plants, Lichen and Fungi of the PNW

Liken the lichen!

Join us for our educational Wild Edible & Medicinal Plants, Lichen and Fungi Field Tour of the Pacific Northwest! Your knowledgeable guide, Herpetologist and Professional Forager, Jerry Novak, will take you on a 2.5 hour walk through meadow, wetland, forest, and riparian habitats in search of the season’s bountiful wild edible and medicinal plants, mushrooms and lichen found on the Olympic Peninsula.  Your guide will teach you identification, uses, benefits, and preparation tips on the wonderful gifts nature provides that we often walk past every day. A delicious tea or other wild edible dish will be prepared for you with what we find along the way!
