Foraging with Family
Friday, April 15, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Join our youth program staff members, Laurel and Gus, on a foraging hike at Cool Spring Preserve. We’ll hunt for wild edibles, including onion grass, garlic mustard, cattail, red bud flowers, and dandelions. While out on the trails, your family will learn the universal edibility test, which is a life-saving method that survivalists use to test whether or not an unknown wild food is safe to eat. After we return with the wild edibles we have harvested from the preserve, we will try out a couple of delicious recipes using our finds.
