Workshop Overview

In this workshop we will meet at Sitka and walk together around the Three Rocks Road property to see local plants and their relationship with the local Native American culture and heritage. Plant samples can be obtained. Please note: the terrain is well-maintained but steep. Walking is anticipated on roads, through grassy meadows and along forest trails. If you have mobility concerns please call the Sitka office for more information. Children must be accompanied by a participating adult.
