Literary Hike: Braiding Sweetgrass
Sunday, October 8, 2023 | 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm$17.00 – $23.00
This hike guided by Naturalist Aubrey Fulsaas will follow the pages of Braiding Sweetgrass by Robin Wall Kimmerer. As a botanist, Robin Wall Kimmerer has been trained to ask questions of nature with the tools of science. As a member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation, she embraces the notion that plants and animals are our oldest teachers. In Braiding Sweetgrass, these two lenses of knowledge are brought together. Join us to experience the trails of Schlitz Audubon in a new way!
Participants will listen to passages from the book while experiencing the natural phenomenon being described as they explore Schlitz Audubon through the words of Kimmerer. Copies of the book are available in our Nature Store to purchase but are not required.
Members: $17 | Non-Members: $23
