Budding Naturalist: Wild Edibles of the Fall (Ages 8-14)

Does your child love nature and want to expand their identification skills? In this program geared toward students ages 8-14, participants can join our specialists for weekly, small-group outdoor sessions.

Fall is a great time to forage for wild edibles as plants mature and offer us a tasty bounty of seeds, berries, mushrooms and more. Local forager and restaurateur, Nikaline Iacano, will lead participants through the Gardens and surrounding woodlands in search of wild edibles to enjoy and identify. Bring your taste buds and a sense of adventure! We will end the session by making a tea with some of our finds.

Please note: In an effort to keep the group size small, this is a drop-off program. If your child would be more comfortable with you nearby, please contact Erika Huber at ehuber@mainegardens.org before the session to discuss options.

Please bring a face covering to be worn while indoors at the Gardens.

Cost includes admission for child and adult chaperone.
