Join us for a fun and educational (fun-ducational!) weekend with Doug Elliott and Michael "Mycol" Stevens at the Yew Mountain Center.
Acclaimed author, naturalist, and herbalist, Doug Elliott returns to Pocahontas County with enchanting stories, a vast knowledge of the forest, and original music inspired by the wild woods. Mycol (as in mycologist) will illuminate the shady secrets of mushrooms. With guided excursions, an evening storytelling concert, live music, great food, and a chance to participate in our forest farming project, this weekend will be a celebration of Appalachian woodland treasures. All ages are welcome.
Choose a piece or come to the whole event. Package deals available at the Yew Shop.
