There is plenty to munch on outdoors--if you just know where to look!
Greenbelt and North Shore Nature Programs present a yummy walk around Cox Reservation where you'll munch on edible plants on the property.
Your guide, Andrew Prazar, will show you how to spot edible plants and teach us about what to eat and what not to eat outdoors. Of course, we'll try a few of the most tasty edible treats!
Some plants we might taste include Juneberries, Dandelions, Lamb's Quarters, Cattails, Milkweed, and Pineapple Weed flowers. You'll also learn about nuts that come from local trees and we'll hunt for some other fun plants like Sassafrass and Beach Plum.
WHEN: Saturday, June 15, 4:00-6:00 pm
WHERE: Cox Reservation, 82 Eastern Ave., Essex, MA
