More about the event:
The Columbia Shuswap Invasive Species Society (CSISS) invites you to embark on an Edible Invasives Plant Identification walk, where we will explore the Kinsmen Park, uncovering both hidden and not-so-hidden plants and discovering their potential uses.
During this 1 hour hike, we will walk the area, immersing ourselves in the natural beauty of the Columbia-Shuswap region. Led by knowledgeable guides from CSISS, we will learn about the invasive plant species that have taken root in this area and their impact on the local ecosystem.
The highlight of the walk will be the opportunity to identify edible invasive plants and explore their potential culinary uses. CSISS, in collaboration with various agencies, non-profits, and individuals dedicated to preserving our environment, has been actively working to prevent and manage the spread of invasive species in the Columbia-Shuswap region. Through this event, they aim to raise awareness about these plants and their role in our surroundings.
Whether you’re a nature enthusiast, a hiker, or simply curious about the local flora, this Edible Invasives Plant Identification Walk promises to be an informative and engaging experience. Join us as we delve into the intricacies of the natural world, discovering how these invasive plants can be transformed into delectable delights.
