Wild Food Foraging

  • June 22, 2014
  • 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
  • Lake MacBride Nature Recreation Area, Mehaffey Bridge Road, north of North Liberty

Learn about the best wild foods of the season during a fun woodland excursion with Mike Loots. 


We will spend the evening learning to find, identify, and prepare edible plants, flowers and fungi that grow wild in the Midwest. From mulberries to burdock, a free buffet of nutrition awaits outside your door.


The event is free and child-friendly. Attendees should bring collection bags and appropriate hiking gear for traversing off-trail: long pants, hat, sturdy footwear, water bottle. Attendees should take precautions for ticks and poison ivy.
