    Event Description:
    Discover nature’s free grocery store! The forests and valleys of Southeastern Minnesota can provide a plethora of palatable plants and mushrooms. We’ll learn the basics of how confidently and safely identify, gather and prepare some common edible species, then we will hit the trails! We will prepare some tasty treats using what we’ve  gathered entirely on-site. It’s fresh, local, organic, and fun! Be prepared to explore off-trail areas.
    Instructor – Samantha Peterson received a B.S.in  Environmental Education and Communication from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. In the years following graduation I have worked as a mushroom cultivator and forager, an environmental educator for urban teens, an instructor for camping workshops, a sawyer, a prescribed burn technician, an ecological research assistant, and most recently, a naturalist at the Jay C. Hormel Nature Center in Austin, MN. Of all of these positions, those that involved an environmental education component have been the most rewarding.
