Just when you thought native plants couldn’t be good for one more thing, what with the habitat they offer for creatures large and small, year-round beauty, foods for the foragers, blooms for the bug eyed and the basic beauty of nature – they go and add to the list.
It is time to kick off the 2014 season of Wild Ones/Hartley educational programs with an all new, never seen before (at least at a Wild Ones event) topic: making natural dyes from local plants.
Debbie Cooter is a weaver and member of the Duluth Fiber Handcrafters Guild, living in Two Harbors. She will be bringing many examples of natural colors to show.
The meeting is this Wednesday, January 22 at Hartley Nature Center. Snacks and socializing from 6:30 -7:00PM. The program will run from 7:00 – 8:15.
Directions are on the event page.
Cost: Hartley Nature Center asks for a $4 goodwill donation from non-members.
