Family Friendly Plant Identification and Foraging Hike
Hello Outdoor Afro family! Please come join us as we explore plants at local National Park, Fort Funston. This hike is designed for all ages to enjoy, it will be no more than 2 miles and will last for about 2 hours. This hiking trail is easy and kid-friendly! We encourage you to bring your children along for this interactive outdoor experience. During this hike at Fort Funston, we will be stopping to learn about the plants; how to identify them and what medicinal/herbal qualities some of them have. As we learn about the plants throughout our hike, we will forage some of the plants and make tea with what we have collected. What you need to bring? Water Bottle, Comfortable shoes, Enthusiasm! It is also is a good idea to dress in layers. The trail is located quite close to the ocean, so please dress accordingly. We will provide the supplies that are needed to prepare the tea. Parking? Parking is free, although there is limited space. Please use the southern parking lot when you arrive which will be to left of the fork as you're on Fort Funston Rd. (This parking lot is near Building 100.) Directions?
