Join local wild food enthusiast and forager, Dan Lipow, owner of DiningWild, for a moderately paced hike through the reservation as we focus on seasonally available wild food. Dan will share his knowledge of edible plants and fungi as frequent stops are made to learn about and collect nature's bounty. We are likely to spot mushrooms and spring greens such as sassafras and garlic mustard. Bring bags or containers with you, as well as plenty of water. Proceeds from the hike will benefit SFNNJs school and urban garden fund.
