Naturalist Walk: Fall Foraging (edible plants)

Event date and time
October 12, 2018 - 4:30 PM to 5:30 PM

From sumac lemonade and wood sorrel to dandelion salad and cattail pancakes, you'll be sure to learn something new on this walk. Join us this month for a tour of common and uncommonly found edible plants on a walk of the Kip Trail in Canton. Having a solid understanding of what is edible and what isn't is key - and will enhance your connection to the local environment as well as your survival skills. This walk will be led by Nature Up North Project Manager Emlyn Crocker. Please meet at the Wachtmeister Field Station at 4:30 pm. To carpool, please meet at the Brewer Bookstore at 4:15 pm (space is limited, please rsvp to info@natureupnorth.org for carpooling). 

This event is part of Nature Up North's Fall 2018 Naturalist Series, on second Fridays September through December from 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm. Keep an eye on our events page for upcoming walks throughout the season.
