Free First Saturday: The Ancient Ways of the Cherokee and How We Can Use Them Today
November 6, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pmFree
Saturday, November 6, 2021 from 1-2PM
Mark Warren, owner of Medicine Bow Wilderness School in Dahlonega, GA has been teaching nature and survival skills of the Cherokee to adults and children for more than 45 years. Mark will be here at DNC leading a FREE one hour program which will be fun and informative for the whole family!
Mark believes today’s society can — and should — learn some valuable lessons and skills from those native people who inhabited the southeastern part of the United States hundreds of years before European explorers ever landed on its shores. He will be discussing how some of the most common native plants and trees were used by the Cherokee for food, medicine, insect repellent, crafts, shelter and fire. Mark will bring along some plants and handmade crafts for viewing and discussion.
This program will take place outdoors, in the Lower Meadow of the Dunwoody Nature Center.
Masks are encouraged when social distancing is not possible. Plan on arriving early to secure a space.
Spaces are extremely limited. Register today!
*In case of inclement weather, this event will be rescheduled to Saturday, November 20 from 1-2pm.*
