Learn how to forage for food! We will identify common edible wild plants in our area and their toxic look alikes. You will have opportunities to taste some wild edible plants and learn how those plants can be used for food and medicine, and when and how to harvest them.

Participants are also responsible for park entrance fees.To register, email Interpretive Naturalist Nicky Ball at niball@dnr.IN.gov.
