Wild FoodsWeekend

Fall Creek Falls State Park would like to welcome you to our annual Wild Foods Day. Are you seeking to
break away from the mainstream and get back to nature? Join us as we discover the delectable cuisine that
nature has to offer and the fascinating rituals of mountain folks/Native Americans that surround it. We
encourage you to take advantage of the programs we have arranged for your enjoyment and enlightenment.

Field trips identifying edible wild plants and workshops on preparing wild meats and breads are just part of the activities. The real treat comes in enjoying the wild feast.
