To harvest, to gather, to move through the woods, picking only the plants you know. Being aware of their use, their value and their helpful qualities will be your task.
Participants will be given the secrets of the many plants in the Portland Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary as we spend our days wild crafting. We’ll learn all about ethical harvesting practices and look to understand the value of plants picked for their beneficial uses.
Campers will spend days wandering the forest with our expert staff, in search of plants that will guide their inspiration for crafted works of art that might include basket making, rope making and salve production.
Join core Portland Audubon staff as we take a day to work in our plant nursery, replanting, caring for and propagating plants for restoration. Come learn the ways of a wildcrafter!
