Join Salt Pond Bird Sanctuaries and The 300 Committee for their adult speaker series, all free and open to the public! April’s talk will be led by author Russ Cohen.

The area in and around Falmouth is home to over 100 species of edible wild plants, ranging from the mundane to the exotic, and includes dozens of species of edible wild mushrooms. Join Russ Cohen, author of the book Wild Plants I Have Known…and Eaten, for a fascinating presentation covering at least three dozen of the tastiest species the region has to offer.

These include species everyone knows well (Daisies and Dandelions), to species you may never have heard of (Calamus or Carrion Flower). Covering at least a dozen of the easier-to-recognize edible mushrooms, Russ will talk about how to identify these species, along with information about edible portions, seasons of availability, preparation methods, and guidelines for safe and environmentally-responsible foraging. Finally, he will discuss some native edible plants he has grown successfully from seed, and will share handouts and samples of foraged goodies made with wild ingredients.

Cost: Free
