Rocky Mountain Wild Edibles 

One of the most frequently asked questions for any guide is ‘Can I eat it?’ We have decided to answer this question in the form of a workshop. You will join a knowledgeable guide on a scenic hike where you learn all about the wild edibles that grow abundantly in the Kananaskis area.
