Join us for a winter day of exploring t the (hopefully) frozen landscape of Arnot Forest. What tracks have the animals left for us to follow? What mysteries do the trees hold? . We will look at tree identification in the winter time, where we do not have leaves to guide us. We will also work on our black ash pack baskets, using the hard work of pounding out splints to stay warm. As we study the trees externally we will gain appreciation for their gifts on the inside as we reveal past years of the ash trees life through removing basket splints.

With the thaw well underway and some new growth possibly showing up we will once again venture out onto the landscape of Arnot Forest. How does the forest feel this time of year? Can we experience it with all our senses? This day we will wander without time or destination, guided by curiosity to follow the mysteries that surround us.

As we prepare for our Walkabout trip fast approaching, we will turn our attention to the wild food the landscape has to offer. How can we apply our study of plants, understanding of ecology, and deep relationship with place to acquire food from Arnot forest? Join us as we wander, give thanks, and harvest the available food that the forest gifts us this time of year.
