Each month we'll spend time tending the Seward Park forest restoration site, followed by hands-on learning with The Foraged Cocktail—Mother-daughter team of ethnobotanist Heidi Bohan and mixology maven Dea Allgood—who will guide our exploration of cocktail alchemy using plants native to Seward Park.
We'll feature seasonal native plants in our interactive lesson to create a unique cocktail ingredient, followed by a native plant happy hour! Learn to craft cocktails from PNW native plants such as blue elder, Oregon grape, devil's club, salal, nettle, wild ginger, wild rose and acorns by creating ingredients like bitters, liqueurs and shrubs along with botanical syrups and garnishes from these wild plants.
This Audubon series is designed for those who identify as young professionals, and is generously supported by the Coleman and Susan Burke Center for Native Plants. 21+ participants only.
