About the Event
The forest comes alive in early spring as the first plants begin to appear. Bloodroot, mayapple, and trillium unfurl their foliage. Fiddleheads emerge in their spiral form, and wild violets gather in clusters along the forest trails. Spring tonics such as chickweed, dandelion, plantain, sochan, and bittercress provide us with nutritious, tender greens to cleanse the body for the year ahead. This is an exciting time to be outdoors, especially after a long, still winter. Join us on the trail for our first plant walk of the season as we get up close and personal with spring wild foods and herbs right as they begin to emerge.
