What topics are covered on a plant walk?
Plant ID, sustainable harvesting, edible/medicinal plants, and treatments for common illnesses and injuries. We show what plants to avoid, as well as plants that are great for shelter building materials, insulation, dental hygiene, water filtration, fire starter, and more. Topics covered will shift seasonally and with what plants are available on site.

Why by donation and what is included?
Simply pay what you can comfortably part with — a suggestion of $10 to $30 per person. The best part is that we donate half the funds raised to local organizations! Monthly, we choose a new group to support and for May it will be Water First for the outstanding work they are doing to ensure First Nation communities have access to clean drinking water.

Things to know before you go:
+ The washrooms are seasonal and may be closed.
+ Though we generally saunter more than hike, there is uneven ground, roots, mud, fallen logs, and other terrain difficulties.
+ Dress right for Calgary, Alberta weather with solid footwear & layers.
+ We accept cash, credit card, e-transfers, and trades as payment.

About the instructor:
Cheyenne Caza, the founder of Wisewood Apothecary, was a just a sprout when her herbal journey began. She practically lived outside, building forts in forests of poplar, earning berry-stained hands, making potions out of seeds and river water, and camping among the tenacious plants of Canadian landscapes. She was a wild scientist that learned through trial and error, picking up tips and hacks along the way. By 26 years old, she earned a formal education in Western Herbal Medicine. She received certification as a Reflexologist and Practical Herbalist through the Wild Rose College of Natural Healing. In an effort to keep things fresh, Cheyenne has taken several certificate classes through the Lodgepole Wholistic Studies. She is now a Board Member of the Alberta Herbalists Association, as well as volunteer on both the events and marketing committees.
