Wednesday Hikes with the Gardens - Wild Urban Edibles


Take a mid week break this summer and explore all that our beautiful state of Colorado has to offer with guided hikes. Learn about ecology through our expert horticulturists and get some fresh air with our Wednesday hike series.


Wild Urban Edibles

Open your eyes and palate to the edible diversity in your yard and neighborhood. Enjoy an interactive and fact-filled walk where you will learn basic plant identification, where and when to look, foraging styles, and responsible gathering principles. This knowledge is also useful in the backcountry, and fosters a deeper connection to your local ecology.
