Discover Wild Eats! April 7 @ Burr Oak


Now that Spring has finally sprung, many of us in Southern Ohio will begin to plan our upcoming hiking and camping trips, but with some help from some of this region’s environmental education experts, you could turn your next hike into a food foraging expedition.

On Saturday, April 7, from 11 am to 2 pm, Naturalist and Hiking Guide Joe Brehm will lead an easy – moderate hike for adults and children, aged 8 and up, that will set attendees up to start foraging to edible plants in their own back yards. Pre-registration is required. Space is limited.

Meet at Burr Oak State Park Dock Area #2 Campground.

The three hour outdoor course will cover how to identify, harvest and prepare some of the more common wild plants that can be found in this region. Attendees will be able to take home an identification sheet which also has some recipes to prepare the harvested plants.
