Foraging for Wild Edibles on the Seashore

Some of the year's lowest tides will occur in March and April, uncovering a variety of edible treasures. Join us on an intertidal foraging excursion on the beach, learn harvesting techniques, and sample salty-sweet ocean delicacies. Foragers will learn about First Nations' use of shellfish, local marine ecology, species identification and what island wines complement the organic ocean treats. You will discover where and how to forage for shellfish locally and how to make sure that your shellfish is safe to eat.

Afterwards, participants will return to the marine station for a short cooking demonstration and a shellfish themed meal paired with Vancouver Island wines all prepared by Chef Lila Ruzicka. Must be 19 years or older to register. Sunday, March 13th from 1:00 to 6:00 pm, cost is $125/person.
