The Forager's Path - School of Botanical Studies

2019 – 2020 Course Schedule

Outdoor Safety for Plant Lovers

Are you a plant lover who does not wander of the beaten path as much as you like due to the fear of getting lost or not being ready for the unexpected?

This one day workshop is specifically designed for the herbal, foraging and botany communities.

Its goal is to give you the ability and confidence to explore away from the crowds and find those special places in the great outdoors when wildcrafting, foraging and botanizing.

The focus of the day is on education and empowerment – not on entertainment, suffering or endurance.
All participants will have access to food, water, a pit toilet and their vehicles throughout the day.

Details on location, what to bring and how to dress will be sent after your registration is received.

Course details are here.

Location: Outdoors at 7,000’ in the ponderosa forest just outside Flagstaff.
Date: Saturday, October 26, 2019
Time: We begin at 9:00 am and go until approx. 4-5 pm with a break for lunch
