Foraging in the Everglades

Known as the Amazon of North America, people have inhabited the Everglades for nearly 10,000 yrs.  The plants that adapted to this tropical environment has sustained the wildlife and the people who made their homes in tropical wilderness.   Join Naturalist Sam Dorfman as we snack our way through the primordial swamps of Grassy Waters.  Participants should be prepared to get wet and dirty.  Hat, sunscreen, water and closed-toed shoes are needed. They must be secure on your feet. We will be trekking through muddy water... Please note, participants will not be collecting only foraging enough for sampling.  

$10 fee, paid to Grassy Waters

For questions about the trek, please contact:

    Loved it! Thank you Susan. That was my first foraging class. Something I've wanted to start learning about for a long time.

    Thanks for taking the time to sponsor this event Susan. Karyn and I had a blast, and learned a lot.

    Sam Dorfman - our guide - is knowledgeable about the Everglades, what we can eat, the history of the area, and more - he is an encyclopedia of fascinating information that made this delightfully muddy trek through the everglades come fully alive for each of us! Don't miss it next time! (Sam's email is: [masked])

    We'll all meet at the teaching building - but I'll likely meet you first in the parking lot...
