Share this event:

The rocky shoreline of Mendocino county boasts some of the greatest diversity of marine algae in North America. Although millions of years old some of these species have witnessed radical changes in the last one hundred years. As proposals to farm seaweeds for food and energy gain momentum join us and:

- Learn to identify several different edible sea vegetables.
- Learn about ethical and sustainable wild harvesting and drying techniques.
- Harvest and dry your own seaweed to take home.
- Taste several types of seaweeds, cook new seaweed recipes and learn about their health benefits.
- Learn about the dynamic state of the kelp forest ecosystem and how we can help with ongoing monitoring and restoration efforts.

This is a three day program, from Fri, 4/28/17 @ 5 pm to Sun, 4/30/17 @ 3 pm.

Activities are planned for Friday evening, all day Saturday, and wrapping up Sunday at 1pm. A detailed itinerary and planning document will be emailed to you following registration.

This intensive workshop is limited to 15 people so please sign up early to reserve your spot! Early bird pricing is available until April 8.
