This fall is a great time for Foraging with Merriwether!

Caddo Mounds State Historic Site invites you to a foraging workshop with Mark “Merriwether” Vorderbruggen. Mark writes the Foraging Texas Blog,, and is a practiced forager and teacher. His book Foraging: Explore Nature's Bounty and Turn Your Foraged Finds Into Flavorful Feasts (Outdoor Adventure Guides) was published in 2022. Make sure to bring your copy or pick one up at our gift shop to have Mark sign while you are here!

This workshop is sponsored by the Friends of Caddo Mounds, Inc.
