Event Details:

Have you ever thought about what plants you could eat if you were lost in the woods? Have you wondered about the plants the Native Americans and early settlers used for food from the forest and natural areas? If the answer is yes, we have a workshop tailor-made for you. We will be going on a trail hike and looking at edible plants found throughout the park. Emphasis will be on identification, common and scientific names, and uses of the plants found along the trails and waysides of Logoly State Park. Sturdy shoes are recommended for the hike (no flip flops). Fee covers handouts and book. The recommended minimum age without a parent is 12. Class size is limited; pre-registration is required.
Admission:
$25
