Sky Meadows State Park provides a unique opportunity to explore the rich natural diversity of the region. Join professional outdoor instructor Tim MacWelch of the Earth Connection School to learn about the remarkable wild edible and medicinal plants of the Blue Ridge Mountains in springtime. This full day hike explores native and non-native species of useful plants and will conclude at the Log Cabin with a sample of the foods prepared from the wild. Each participant receives a full color copy of our Spring Mountain Herbs manual as a take-home reminder of the workshop.
