 Wild Edible Plants Walk / Fanwood Nature Center
Join the Fanwood Environmental Commission on an “Edibles Walk” to find those plants that are hiding in plain view.  Educator, naturalist, nutritionist, and wild plant expert Debbie Naha will lead us.  Ms. Naha is a featured walk leader at the annual Union County Bio-Blitz held each June.  She will point out those plants that can be harvested for salads and snacks (and perhaps a few you shouldn’t touch) and just might share some of her secret “wild” recipes. Meet at the entrance to the Fanwood Nature Center. 
1:00pm
Please visit the Fanwood Environmental Commission website: www.fanwoodec.org
