Traditional Plants Community Info Session in Dawson City

On April 18th, Dawson City based ethnobotanist Leigh Joseph hosted a community information session at the Dänojà Zho Cultural Centre .  It was a great chance for Dawsonites to learn about the area’s traditional plant foods and medicines, as well as an opportunity to take part in the conversation.

Leigh Joseph and the Culture Heritage Staff are hoping Dawsonites can share their thoughts on how this knowledge can be used in our community, and they will also be planning  a series of traditional plant harvest outings.
The session was a great way to prepare for the many foraging and gathering opportunities in the summer!
