Come take a walk with us!

The Métis Nation of Alberta’s Environment and Climate Change Department is pleased to offer our Traditional Plant Walks once again.

Embark on a beginner-friendly guided walk with Métis cultural educator Natalie Pepin to learn about traditionally utilized plants. Gain a deeper understanding of the plants around us, their cultural significance, and how they can help us.

Event details:

At each event we welcome you to come on 2.5-hour leisurely nature walk to be introduced to the plants around us. While on this walk, Knowledge Holder Natalie shares stories and discusses the cultural and ecological significance of the plants and how they can be used.

Space is limited and offered on a first come, first-serve basis, we ask that you only register if you know can attend. The Traditional Plant Walks are a family-friendly event, and any children attending under 12 years old do not require registration or tickets to join. Interested in a date that is marked full?
