Rowena Conahan: Identifying edible Plants

. August 1, 2014.

Even though morel season is behind us, foraging for late summer goodies can still yield a fine meal, and help with allergies. Join naturalist Rowena Conahan for a walk to learn how to identify, pick and prepare edible and medicinal plants. Find teas like bermagot (deliciously eases the common cold), goldenrod (settles seasonal allergies) and catnip (soothing to humans, but makes your cat go bonkers!). Blackberries and wood nettle (a spinach-like leaf) may also be on the menu. The walk is limited to 20 participants and registration is required.

Sunday, August 17. 2-4pm. Scio Woods Preserve, Scio Church Rd., Lakewood. 734-971-6337. ewashtenaw.org Free—MW
