Forager Hike

August 13, 2022

Visitors can get a look at some of the plants which would have been eaten and used by the ancient Native Americans on Saturday, August 13 at Poverty Point World Heritage Site.  The event begins at 10 a.m.  The 1.5 mile ranger-led hike will take visitors through a portion of the earthworks with a focus on useful native plants. This group of hunter-gatherers did not grow their own food. Instead, they relied on the surrounding wilderness as both their supermarket and their pharmacy. Be aware that this event is weather permitting and visitors should wear appropriate hiking clothing.
