My daughter and I had a wonderful time creating sage crowns and wands. Laura is so sweet and very knowledgeable about the area. Laura made our outing extra special and shared some must see areas for us to go to while in Tahoe.

Laura gave my friends and I a crown making class as part of a Bachelorette Party, and it was a wonderful experience. Everyone loved foraging for sage and flowers, and Laura was so kind and patient with the 10 different women’s needs and personalities. She is an expert at what she does and is super warm, fun, and kind-hearted. It was such a special experience and I’d highly recommend!!!

This activity was really fun for me and my 2 daughters age 8 and 12. Laura was very knowledgeable about the indigenous wildflowers, plants and animals. The girls had fun scavenging for their own sage and the location next to the stream was perfect! So relaxing and we really felt like a part of nature. Great fun thing to do, especially if you like crafts.

Experience was perfect while on a vacation, extremely relaxing and fun. My girlfriend loves to sage around our house and appreciates local activities while vitiating an area Laura was very warm and welcoming while teaching us how to build our own sage bundles. Overall an amazing experience and would highly suggest if flowers and different local things like this interest you.
