With many of our typical medicinal herbs unavailable to us during the winter, we often must turn to the trees. Learn how to identify many of the trees in the Maine woods while working with them to make several medicinal preparations, which may include teas, alcohol extractions, salves, and nutritious foods. Come walk with us and see some of the medicine the forest has to offer at this time of year.
This group has been put together for anyone interested in immersing themselves in the outdoor world with the hopes of connecting to nature by learning more about it.
I started this group because I am connected to a community of people who posses amazing knowledge and experience in the Northeast woods and have a burning desire to share and learn more.
Perhaps you are interested in hiking, rock climbing, camping, kayaking, backpacking, ect. Meetups will include some of these activities with an intention on learning a few things about the environment we love to engage in.
This learning can include topics such as wild edible and medicinal plants in your area, animal tracking, ecology, survival training, wilderness medicine and first aid, fire making, and more. Come create stories you'll be excited to tell your friends and loved ones about, all in the great state of Maine!
Feel free to contact any of the organizers with questions or suggestions :)
