ONRC: Dec. 15th, Evening Talk “ Wild Edible Plants in Western Washington” by Courtney Bobsin, MS, School of Environmental and Forest Sciences at 7 p.m. in the Hemlock Forest Room.

We here at ONRC send you a warm-hearted December wish during these fog-freezing evenings and ask you to join us for our next Evening Talk.

We have an upcoming talk for next Friday evening with staff member, Ms. Courtney Bobsin. She will present a talk about wild edible plants in Western Washington and the Olympic Peninsula. Courtney received her master’s degree from the University of Washington with a focus on understory plant growth in a long-term ecosystem productivity study.

She is familiar with the Forks area as she was our lead intern for several years on the Long Term Eco Productivity Site near Sappho, WA.

Working out of the UW Campus Seattle, Courtney joins us as a staff member focusing on ethnoforestry on the Olympic Peninsula. She is a plant enthusiast that enjoys foraging all over the Pacific Northwest.

Courtney will be giving a presentation on “Wild Edible Plants in Western Washington”, focusing on plant identification techniques, examples of the best plants to forage for, and those to stay away from. She will go through different edible roots, shoots, berries, and everything in between so folks feel confident exploring and tasting their way through the woods. She is excited to share her love for wild plants with the greater Forks community.

Please join us on Dec. 15, Friday night, at 7 p.m. in the Hemlock Forest Room.

Evening Talks at ONRC is funded through the Rosmond Forestry Education Fund, an endowment that honors the contributions of Fred Rosmond and his family to forestry and the Forks community. Refreshments will be served and a potluck of your favorite dessert is encouraged.
