Wilderness Wayfinding with Ondatra Adventures

Saturday, August 10, 2024

Keleher Preserve

Not all learning happens in the classroom. In fact, some of the most important and long lasting lessons we can experience only occur in the wild. In this class, students will learn several key skills regarding navigation and wilderness survival. Participants will have to ‘master’ these skills quickly as they will be tested at the end of the class with a final challenge!


Wild Edible & Medicinal Plants with Ondatra Adventures

Sunday, August 11, 2024

10 AM - 1 PM

Bozen Kill Preserve - NEW Bond Rd entrance

It doesn’t take traveling to the far reaches of the wilderness to immerse oneself in the world of wild edible & medicinal plants. In fact, many plants that are considered ‘weeds’ are our most powerful and nutritional allies. Join Dave Muska of Ondatra Adventures to learn about the many edible & medicinal plants that inhabit our landscape. Nature’s bounty is truly everywhere!
