We are going to ease back into in person programming, and what a great way to start with Merriwether's return to Caddo Mounds SHS.

This program will be limited to 10 people, all participants will need to comply with mask and social distancing guidelines. For this program masks will be required outside on our foraging hike. We will have disposable masks on site for any who need one. All participants will be asked to sign a liability release before the program begins.

Caddo Mounds State Historic Site invites the public to foraging workshop with Mark “Merriwether” Vorderbruggen. Mark writes the Foraging Texas Blog, and is a practiced forager and teacher. Mark's book and Idiot's Guide to Foraging was published April 2016. Make sure to bring your copy or pick one up at our gift shop to have Mark sign while you are here!
