About the event
Join the girl guides of Uncharted Outdoorswomen for a private Women of Colorado event guided by Madi and Melissa! Madi is a vegetarian who has studied the forest through her therapy practice. She describes herself as a naturalist and forest walker. Melissa grew up foraging with her family all over Colorado. She usually travels backcountry roads via her offroad vehicle, which she fixes herself! Below is a list of gear to bring and plants we plan to identify. Their objective is to introduce you to how to find and identify medicinal plants and mushrooms.
