Fall has arrived, let’s see what it tastes like! Join us to learn all about some of the delicious and nutritious plants that are available at this bountiful time of year. We’ll discuss how to identify, harvest, and prepare these wild foods. We’ll also learn about the ethics of harvesting wild plants and look at the role these plants play in the forests and prairies of western Iowa. Additionally, there will be time to sample some of the plants. Enjoy a snack and stay after the program to explore the park and socialize.
