Join Rachel Galan, Assistant Site Manager of Caddo Mounds State Historic Site, on Saturday, May 27th at Mission Dolores State Historic Site’s Visitor Center for a leisurely foraging walk. Most of the plants you will meet are more than likely happily growing just a few steps from your own front door and offer a wealth of wild foods and remedies. Some of these plants are Texas natives, some were carefully carried here by explorers and settlers, and some just hitched a ride and made Texas home.
We’ll start under the Muscadine grape arbor at 10 am on Saturday, May 27th, have a look at some of the plants growing in our Administration Building flower beds and lawn and then take a walk along the Mission Dolores walking path and see what foraging plants we can find, identify and discuss.
In case of rain, the foraging walk will be rescheduled for a later date.
Admission to the foraging walk is free and suitable for those age 12 and older. Attendees are encouraged to wear comfortable shoes, use bug spray and dress for the weather.
