We will be foraging on the trail and learning about all kinds of plants especially the edible ones. We will be identifying plants and having fun while enjoying the outdoors.

BIO:

Sean Wall

I attended the University of North Texas, majoring in biology. In 2009, I transferred to Texas A&M to

study wildlife and fisheries sciences and environmental sciences. I have worked on several game

ranches, developing species and habitat management plans, and I’ve also worked locally in Brazos

county with several non-profits, providing environmental education and teaching communities about

the beneficial resources that Nature provides in our communities. I am also a professional painter and

sculptor and I have an active portfolio managed through my website, anaturalplace.wordpress.com. My

hope is to share with people, through my education and art, how we can reconnect with our natural

environment, to improve our own quality of life while also creating opportunities to restore valuable

natural habitat.

My family has been foraging for wild foods for many years, and most of the foods we eat directly come

from our local environment. Wild foods are extremely nutritious, and maintenance free. They need no

supplemental watering, or fertilizer, or pesticides in order to grow healthy and strong. As important

parts of their local environments, they also provide food and shelter for wildlife, as well as essential

ecosystem services.
