Urban Foraging in Hattiesburg

08 December 2023

The rains have finally returned to South Mississippi! I invite you to deepen your understanding of the plants and fungi that flourish in the cooler weather with me at Oseola McCarty Park.

We will learn the identification of Mississippi plants and their traditional uses as food and medicine.

This is an opportunity to build a relationship with your neighbors: plant, human, and otherwise. We will be meeting at Oseola McCarty Park in Hattiesburg near the parking lot.

I have been teaching foraging and ethnobotany to the community for over ten years having been invited to lecture on these topics to organizations such as Gulf Island National Seashore and Crosby Arboretum. I have a bachelors in cultural anthropology and have done graduate work in same field.

The suggested donation for the class is $10 though no student is ever turned away from my classes because they lack funds. Pre-pay or just donate to my vision of connecting people to the nature at Venmo:@myles-Ray-2 or Cashap: $mylesray0

Cash at the event is happily accepted too!

Call or (preferably)text 228-327-0002 for information
