On Sunday, April 21, as part of Frick Park’s new 3-day Earth Day celebration, we will be leading 2 wild edibles walks, at 2 pm and 3 pm. There will also be wild mushroom walks led by the Western PA Mushroom Club, wildflower walks, lichen/moss walks, spider walks, tree ID walks, bird walks….and MORE! I think it is going to be an amazing time!
The walks are this Sunday, April 21, from 12 noon to 4 pm (walks starting at 12, 1, 2, and 3 pm.) Each walk is 45 minutes long. See the whole flyer here. This is a FREE family-friendly event, so if you are in Pittsburgh, Western PA, Ohio, W. Virginia area make it a point to come by, it’s going to be great fun.
We will be looking for and discussing burdock, dandelions, cleavers, violet, clover, fiddleheads, yellow/curly dock, broad leaf dock, garlic mustard, deadnettles, onion grass, morel mushrooms, dryad saddle mushroom, clover, may apple, mugwort, mullein, chickweed, and I’m sure we’ll even find more! Find out how to cook with these amazing plants and use them medicinally as well.
Hope to see you there!
