Foraging Walk N - East Central

This 2,100-acre site is approximately 12 km NE of Myrnam. It can be accessed from RR 74, 80, and 81, and from Twp Rd 554. Horseback riders can enjoy designated equine trails that have been restored and are maintained by the Alberta Trail Riding Association. Look for the staging areas on RR 80 and 81. A large waterbody lies in its centre, and a DUC water-controlled structure has created an excellent waterfowl marsh W of the lake. Mature aspen and white spruce surround much of the waterbody, and the site is otherwise covered by open fields with small patches of forest scattered throughout. Wildlife in the area includes moose, white-tailed and mule deer, black bear and upland game birds.

Kevin Kossowan has been on 100+ wild food adventures in the Canadian wild for his twice James Beard Foundation award nominated web series ‘From The Wild’. He’s taught field cookery at the Global Bushcraft Symposium, co-creates the series ‘Wild Harvest’ with Les Stroud and chef Paul Rogalski airing on PBS and National Geographic, has led numerous foraging workshops and forage-to-table workshops, and regularly works with chefs exploring the culinary potential of the Canadian wilderness.
