Downtown Raleigh Wild History Foraging Walk + Wild Food Tasting with the Naturalist Center at the Museum of Natural Sciences on June 17!

Join us at the NC Museum of Natural Sciences for a Wild History Foraging Walk + Wild Food Tasting.

We’ll learn more about edible wild plants growing along downtown Raleigh streets, hear stories about Raleigh’s local history along our trail, and then taste dishes made from the same plants! Class begins in the Naturalist Center at the NC Museum of Natural Sciences, from there we will explore the wild places in the surrounding downtown area, and then end at a nearby park for a wild foods tasting. We will review foraging guidelines and safety as well as instruction on plant uses and identification. For the light picnic you can expect wild tea, local bread, wild jams, jellies, and pickles, wild greens, and a wild treat for dessert!
