Wildman Steve Brill Foraging Tour of Inwood Hill Park
Wildman Steve Brill celebrates 38 years of foraging with a romp through Inwood Hill.
Inwood Hill Park is one of the best places for foragers in late summer. The city's hilliest park, with a large, mature forest, meadows, thickets, and cultivated areas, it's loaded with wild plants. This is a great time for berries. Participants can harvest wineberries, blackberries, cornelian cherries, and elderberries, all different and all delicious.
With lots of rain beforehand and a bit of luck, gourmet oyster mushrooms, chicken mushrooms, chanterelles, boletes, and russulas may be emerging.
Meet at the playground at Anne Loftus Playground, Dykeman St. and Broadway, which is not in Inwood Hill Park, but across from the Dykeman St. stop of the A Train.
Waterproof boots strongly recommended. Register in advance.
