What you'll do

Did you know the Donner Party was surrounded by food, but they didn't know what they could eat? I'll help you avoid that fate while in Cascadia by sharing with you some of the edible plants that grow here as I escort you on an adventure in the woods. I'll also show you which plants to avoid & some that can be used as medicine. While you won't come away with a full belly or enough food for a meal, you will have an appreciation for the wide variety of edible plants growing in our region, as well as new skills of observation that will deepen your enjoyment of nature. Be prepared for uneven terrain, and getting acquainted with soil & insects (no, you won't be eating them). I am NOT a mushroom hunter, and though I have eaten wild mushrooms with knowledgeable people, we will not be on this trip.

I grew up running around the woods with my siblings and find nurturing and strength in nature. I have a BS in Fisheries and Wildlife Sciences and a keen interest in ethnobotany. I own Neyssasary Shenanigans Ecotours and, with a partner naturalist, run Outdoor Education Adventures, teaching kids of all ages & encouraging an intimate relationship with nature. I also lead wine tours on horseback.

Where you'll be

We'll be hiking the north end of the Wildwood Trail in Forest Park. While Forest Park is a very popular hiking spot, the north end feels pretty remote and this hike features a lovely creek.

Things to keep in mind

Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase.

Guest requirements

Up to 8 guests aged 2 and up can attend.

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

More tips
