Metis Medicine Guided Plantwalk

View the many edible & medicinal plants of Southern Alberta on a fascinating historical plant-walk lead by Metis Herbalist, Kalyn Kodiak. Choice of many local parks and green spaces in or close to Calgary – there is medicine everywhere for those who know how to find it.

Kalyn grew up by the old man river and has been making medicine from the trees, shrubs & berries of Southern Alberta since 2012. Traditional food and medicine is available year-round with a focus on plants important to the Metis during the season.

Learn about the cultural, safety and ecological considerations of plant medicine use, as well as how the Metis make and use medicines, clothes and food out of raw plant materials from the prairies, foothills and valleys of Southern Alberta.
