Spring Foraging Expedition @ Wheaton Regional Park, MD
May 22 @ 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm

Event registration:

On Sunday, May 22nd from 3 pm – 4:30 pm, Drott Lodge will embark on a spring walk in Wheaton Regional Park to forage for native spring edibles: mushrooms, ramps, edible flowers, and berries. Our Spring Foraging Walk will be led by Matt Cohen of Matt’s Habitats.  Matt is a landscaper who became interested in foraging after spending time working on an organic farm; he hosts between 10 – 15 walks each year in the Takoma Park and Silver Spring area in search of wild edibles. During the walk, Cohen points out more than two dozen types of plants and trees, giving a bit of historical background on some and cooking recommendations on others.
Registration for the event is required – Deadline is May 17

Please join us at 1:30 for a picnic lunch prior to our foraging trip. You may bring your own or order a boxed lunch from Panera. Box lunches will be available for pre-order for the event.  Although our foraging trek does not begin until 3 pm, we have reserved Picnic Shelter G from 9 am until 8 pm.  The park offers many recreational opportunities: fishing, the adventure playground, walking trails, ponds, and nearby “Brookside Gardens” as well as a nature center that offers displays of live reptiles and mammals to delight young naturalists.
