Foraging in the Watershed – by David Williams
Monday, Feb. 27 – 6:00 – 7:00 pm
Have you ever walked past a stand of Sumac or Elderberry or through a grove of Hickory, Maple, or Oak? Have you trod close enough to the water to see Cattails or deep enough in the woods to see blooming Spicebush or through the prairie and the alluring colors of Bee Balm and Cone Flowers? If you answered yes to any of these then congrats! You’ve seen a Native Edible Plant! Join us to learn how to identify more plants and how to properly harvest them. You’ll also learn more about America’s native sugar producer, the Maple tree! Did you know that it takes roughly 35 gallons of sap to get a gallon of syrup? FLOW volunteer David Williams will lead us through these topics and more.
