The Great Auk, Garefowl, or Penguin of the North was a substantial sea bird whose extinction was entirely the work of humankind.

The bird’s existence ended on the morning of June 3, 1844, when the last two recorded Great Auks were killed by three fishermen on the island of Eldey off the southwest coast of Iceland.

With pictures and through the words of Errol Fuller, a world-renowned authority on extinct birds, Griswold will illustrate the epic destruction of a species.

We all know that locally grown organic food is what is best for us. No unwanted chemicals, more healthy nutrients, less wasteful byproducts of large scale farming and long distance transportation. Having your own garden is even better of course.

What about wild plants? They’re right there, some in great abundance. Some non-native species are in too much abundance, out competing their native neighbors. Many of these we can eat and it is becoming quite well documented that they are better for us, containing higher and more complete amounts of the nutrients we need to be healthy within the same volume of food.

The Forest Wolf, Andy Dobos, will help you learn some common, easily identifiable edible wild plants and how to responsibly harvest and prepare them. We will walk through field, forest and wetland edge, all almost within sight of each other.

We have special permission to pick plants on WMCC property, something that is not normally allowed, which gives us an incredible opportunity to do this in a most beautiful setting. All the plants we cover will be species one could find in their back yard or old farmland or wood lot, so no excuses for not making future use of what you will learn.
