Controlled Rot: Wild Yeasts and Their Uses

Wild yeasts and bacteria have been used for thousands of years by humans to preserve many different foods. From sourdough bread to pickles, wild yeasts were the unseen force that ruled over food preservation for generations before refrigeration. Join Ranger Wade Engels on a guided hike to discuss where wild yeasts live, how to capture them and how to use their powers of preservation. The program begins at the Catawba River Area breezeway at 10 a.m. and lasts approximately 1-and-1/2 hours.
