These five, two-hour classes will cover the basics of how, when, and why to forage for foods in nature, as well as in your own backyard. We will discuss native and introduced mushrooms, berries, greens, shoots, and roots, as well as a variety of animals. Class members will be surprised at the many opportunities to find healthier food while enjoying Utah's great outdoors. Learn the basic equipment, time of year, and likely locations to harvest, prepare, and store these wild foods. The instructor will provide valuable handouts and resources, and schedule a fun, local, informal outdoor field trip. Current University of Utah policy requiring mask wearing and social distancing will be followed.
