Spirituality – Wilderness Awareness

Join us for a slide presentation showcasing the diversity of plants and natural communities found at Friends Lake Cooperative Community followed by a plant walk where we can make our own discoveries. The focus will be on the native plant species found in the woodlands and wetlands of the property.

Amanda says: “What began in 1995 as a piqued interest in herbs, has developed into a passionate lifetime dedication to all plants, in a diversity of ways, with a particular focus on preserving native species. I have been working professionally with the Michigan flora since 2006, with extensive knowledge in plant identification, native plant propagation, seed collecting, botanical surveying, herbarium work and more.”
