CAMDEN — Naturalist and forager Tom Seymour leads a spring foraging workshop at Merryspring Nature Center, Saturday, April 27, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
This class will introduce beginning foragers to a variety of edible spring plants. Guests will learn how to identify, when to forage, how to limit environmental impact, and how to cook and prepare wild plants.
After an indoor presentation, the group will head outside to search the Merryspring trails for wild spring edibles.
This is an outdoor program. Guests are advised to wear weather-appropriate clothing, sturdy shoes, and to be prepared to walk on uneven terrain.
Seymour is a writer and naturalist based in Waldo. He is the author of multiple books including Forager's Notebook, Foraging New England, and Wild Plants of Maine - A Useful Guide, now in its third edition, and many Falcon Guides on subjects diverse as hiking, birding, and fishing in Maine.
