Don’t miss the perfect opportunity to be Wild for a Day! Each camp is 9am-3pm, with Extended Day available (8am-5:30pm).
December 12 – Wild Harvest: Roots
An amazing highlight of each Wild Harvest class is that we not only harvest our food directly from the wild, we also prepare it into an unforgettable gourmet meal which is complete with world class chef techniques in gastronomy and creative mixology. An unparalleled gourmet meal is included at the end of every class.
A Nocturnal Adventure!
In early winter, local owls are coming back to their nesting sites to find their mate and get ready for their new family. Owls become more vocal as they claim their territory and call to let their mate know they have returned for another mating season. Join Gail Abrams on a trip to the Mason Farm Biological Reserve in Chapel Hill to listen and look for signs of screech, barred, and great horned owls. After we try our hand at calling owls, you’ll get to meet an eastern screech owl, barred owl and great horned owl up close! Learn why owls are so important to the environment and what you can do to help.
