Meet at Better World Museum. Discover Urban Edible Plants growing downtown Minneapolis. Join this walking tour including Hennipin Ave, Nicollet Mall, and surrounding area. We will observe edible, medicinal, and poisenous plants growing in the sidewalk cracks, popping up along buildings, and growing in planters owned by private business and in public spaces. 

We will be geo-tagging plants with the app iNaturalist. Please download and sign into this free app prior to the walking tour. This activity is optional, but it's super cool and will be part of more future walking tours. 

We will also be drawing specimens of plants. Please download any free drawing app on your smartphone, or bring a sketchbook and tradional drawing materials of your choice.
