DeVries Nature Conservancy

Become an expert forager with Adam Haritan!

Learn to appreciate Michigan wilderness in a whole new way as we explore the trails of Sleepy Hollow State Park and DeVries Nature Conservancy on the hunt for delicious and nutritious wild forage. Researcher, naturalist and expert forager Adam Haritan will lead the hikes. You can read his full bio and check out his work on his website,, and his YouTube channel.

This event is a full day of activities.

Lunch is provided by DeVries. The event will conclude at 2:30 with tincture/tea/cooking workshop titled "What to Do With the Goods"
