Kids OUT! - Edible Nettles!

Edible Nettles! (Grades 1-5)

The abundance of spring brings a wilderness of young plants, ripe berries, lush flowers, and everything that eats them. Young birds, mammals, reptiles, and amphibians are everywhere this time of year, and they are all dependent on plants. We, too, can join this wild rumpus if, and only if, we truly know the plants. Plants can feed you, heal you, warm you, help you, or harm you depending on how you relate to them. For this skill, expect an adventure into the plant world and the discovery of some big allies!

Drop-off and pick-up: Drive Chuckanut Drive past Fairhaven Park. The road ascends and intersects with Viewcrest Road at the top of the hill. We will meet there at the small bit of parking on the left (east) side of the road. We will also plan to meet families on the right (west) side and walk kids across. Carpooling encouraged.

Cost: $55

Scholarships

Cost should not be a barrier for participation. Financial assistance is available for families who need it. Please fill out the brief financial assistance form during registration.
