Wild Edibles of Lexington's Waysides at Lincoln Park
Wednesday, June 14, 2023
Once again, CLC (Citizens for Lexington Conservation) is delighted to have Russ Cohen return for another walk to teach us about wild edible plants! Lexington is home to over 70 species of edible wild plants, both native and non-native, including plants considered to be weedy or invasive. Some are more nutritious and/or flavorful than their cultivated counterparts. Join Russ Cohen, expert forager and author of Wild Plants I Have Known…and Eaten, on a two-hour ramble in and around Lincoln Park to learn about at least eighteen edible species. Russ will present information on identification tips, edible portion(s), season(s) of availability and preparation methods, as well as general guidelines for safe and environmentally-responsible foraging. Steady rain cancels.
Meet at the Lincoln Park Fitness Trail entrance at the crosswalk on Worthen Road across from\ the Lexington High playing fields.
