Was ihr unternehmen werdet

Find out what you can eat in the woods! We'll hike in the lovely Santa Cruz mountains where I'll guide you on a beautiful, quiet 2.5-mile hike in the unique coastal oak & redwood forest. Together we'll learn the ancient ways of identifying edible and medicinal mushrooms, plants, roots, flowers, nuts and seeds (depending on the season). Along the way we'll discuss proper harvesting and preparation techniques while connecting to the beauty and abundance of our ecosystem.

This experience is a fun, hands-on way to connect to what can feed, heal and harm us in the wild. You'll walk away with a whole new appreciation and understanding of nature! The hike is doable for all skill levels. See you on the trail!

Other things to note:
Secure your own transportation to Cat & Cloud Coffee and we'll caravan to the hike start. Bring: layers (it can get chilly in the redwoods), water bottle and comfortable hiking shoes. Optional: hiking poles, camera, hat, sunglasses.

COVID-19 protocols: this experience is COVID-safe, as we can maintain 6' distance outdoors the entire time, wear masks and still enjoy everything this experience has to offer. If you're concerned about specifics, please contact me here or at info@MountainSeaAdventures.com

I'm a Santa Cruz local, with over 10 years experience as a naturalist. I've traveled all over the world foraging and adventuring outdoors. I turned my passion into a business when I founded Mountain Sea Adventures, an outdoor adventure company connecting people to mother nature. My experience is not manufactured or forced, my routes are uncrowded and peaceful. For me, foraging is a way of life: we make a connection with our natural world through being nourished and healed by plants, mushrooms and trees.

Tons of information, positivity, and delicious snacks! We had a blast learning about nature and getting closer connected to this earth with Caitlin. I would highly recommend again!

Caitlin has a wealth of knowledge to share and the tour is in an absolutely beautiful location. My daughter and I drove up from Paso Robles specifically for this experience and it was so worth it. She definitely instills a sense of respectful and responsibility for the earth in her foraging students. There is a really awesome mix of scientific information, historical facts and individual attention. I would totally repeat this experience again just for the opportunity to slow down and soak it all in without trying to take so many notes and photos! If you have any interest in California foraging... go see Caitlin!

Due to covid our meeting area’s bathrooms weren’t open. That wasn’t ideal since I think the whole reason we met there was to use the bathrooms (most had to go). Good planning on Caitlins part since the hike is every bit of 2.5 hours. She goes to different trails and this one was amazing. We tried about 15 different edible plants and identified about 2 dozen plants with various benefits and interactions. Caitlin is very knowledgeable and brought some of her foraged goods us to try or smell or for show. You could tell she cared and believed in her craft. In a good way not a cheesy or over the top way. She answered all of our questions and was friendly with the group. There were about 10 of us with masks walking in the group so if that bothers you I’d make note of it.

Caitlin is very knowledgeable about mushrooms and edible plants. She not only taught us knowledge about these plants but also how to build a relationship with nature. Also, she brought us nuts and acorn flour that she made at home to share with us. I have never tried acorn flour before and definitely appreciate her thoughtfulness because I don't think it is something we can easily get in the store. Another small detail from the experience is that she sent us a message before the class to encourage us to try a local coffee if we arrive early (where the class meet). This effort although small but it is a nice gesture to support local small businesses which is super awesome!

We learned so much about the plants and trees on our walk, it really opened our eyes to nature’s bounty, right there in front of us! Caitlin was a warm and engaging host. Her love for nature shines through and she welcomes questions of all types. We especially appreciated stories of her experiences, while nibbling our way through our nature walk. If you’re looking for an introduction to foraging for edible plants, flowers and nuts, while enjoying an easy hike with a great instructor, this is a great class.
