The kitchen table is headed to the bush! Join Métis ikwe Jenna Vandal on a Native plant identification walk at Little Mountain Park!

Learn about the medicinal and edible qualities of our Native plants and learn how to make Wolf Willow beads – a beautifully decorative bead our ancestors used pre-contact! You will also learn to identify one of the most important edible roots to prairie people, a root venerated for its high carbohydrate content and delicious taste: Indian Breadroot. Please dress for the weather!
