What edible and medicinal plants can we find in our own backyard? What’s the role of city-dwellers in nature connection and conservation? Urban environments are home to many fascinating, diverse plant and animal species that we interact with everyday, whether we know it or not. Join urban naturalists Danielle and byron for a fun afternoon as we explore the banks of the Eramosa river, identifying plants, playing games, telling stories and asking questions about our local ecology.

What to Bring: Water, a snack. Optional: field guides
