Nibbling on Natives in Your Back Yard and Beyond

April 6 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Enjoy Nature… with webinars from Newton Conservators

Join Russ Cohen, expert forager and author of Wild Plants I have Known… and Eaten, for a webinar featuring at least two dozen species of native edible wild plants suitable for adding to your own landscape, or nibbling on as you encounter them in other locales. Keys to the identification of each species will be provided, along with edible portions, seasons of availability and preparation methods, and guidelines for safe and environmentally responsible foraging.

Since his retirement as the Rivers Advocate for the Mass. Dept. of Fish and Game’s Division of Ecological Restoration, Russ has more time to pursue his avocation, which is connecting to nature via his taste buds — and assisting others in doing the same. He has set up a small nursery in Weston where he grows over 1,000 plants that he propagates from seed.

Each program will begin at 7 pm and last approximately one hour. You may register for the programs using the links below or by going to the event listing at newtonconservators.org. You will receive an email confirmation after you have registered.
