Edible & Medicinal Plant Walk at Yellow Creek
September 14, 2022 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Dana Driscoll – Learn more about in-season fall plants growing in our region. Dana will cover 18-25 plants and trees that grow at Yellow Creek and discuss their edible and medicinal uses in this interactive presentation. Participants will take a hike at Yellow Creek and learn how to identify medicinal and edible plants: where and how they grow, how they can be ethically harvested, and how to prepare them. We will also cover wild food foraging, safety, and ethics. A special discussion of nut harvesting and processing will be included. Plants typically covered on this walk include Yarrow, Yellow Dock, Hickory, Oak, Butternut, Sassafras, Maple, Autumn Olive, and many more.
