Come join us for our next meeting on Wednesday, February 8th at 7:00 pm. Guests are welcome and all are invited to come early to socialize before the meeting.
This Month’s Topic is Foraging for Wild Edibles presented to us by Dave Brooks, Manager of Conservation Services at Spring Valley Nature Center.
“Foraging for wild edible plants requires knowledge and skill possessed by our ancestors, but lost to most of us. This introduction will show you how, when, and where to gather a variety of highly nutritious and delicious wild plants, as well as provide recipes and other preparation tips. Suggestions and resources for improving your wild plant identification skills will also be available.”
Dave is a professional naturalist who has given presentations on Illinois natural history and green landscaping to groups of all ages throughout the Chicago area since 1990. Dave has been a speaker at our club many times and always delivers an informative and entertaining talk.
