Forage like an expert

Written by 

Wildcrafter Ila Hatter, of Bryson City, will teach a one-day class called “Foraging for Food and Farmacy” 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 19, through the Smoky Mountain Field School.

Students will spend a day learning how to identify the plants and trees that Native Americans and early settlers used for dye, food, medicine, crafts and other necessities for daily life.

The Smoky Mountain Field School is a partnership of the University of Tennessee and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park to promote learning in the natural world. Courses take place outdoors at various locations inside the park.
