The United States:‘Edible Wild Plant/Mushroom Walk’ in Mansfield Great Woods

2014-07-17 11:43:41

The Natural Resources Trust of Mansfield is sponsoring an "Edible Wild Plant/Mushroom Walk" to be held on Tuesday, July 22 from 6 to 8 p.m. Walkers should meet at the Oak Street entrance of the Mansfield Great Woods. The event is free and open to the public.
Mansfield is home to more than 70 species of edible wild plants, many of which are more nutritious and/or more flavorful than their cultivated counterparts. The NRT invites you to join Russ Cohen, expert forager and author of the book "Wild Plants I Have Known…and Eaten," on a two-hour ramble through the Great Woods to learn about at least 18 species of edible wild plants. Pending favorable weather conditions, several edible mushroom species may be encountered as well. Keys to the identification of each species will be provided, along with information on edible portions, seasons of availability and preparation methods, as well as general guidelines for safe and environmentally responsible foraging.
