Wild food expert Tom Seymour will lead a Wild and Native Food Foraging Workshop at Merryspring Nature Center Saturday, May 25, from 10 a.m. to noon.

Guests will join Seymour on a walking lecture around the Merryspring grounds for a foraging scavenger hunt for native and wild edible plants. Along with botanical properties and natural histories, Seymour will give attendees cooking tips and recipe ideas for edible plants found in the Midcoast region.

Seymour is a writer and naturalist based in Waldo. He is the author of multiple books including "Wild Plants of Maine – A Useful Guide," "Forager’s Notebook" and "Foraging New England" – and many Falcon Guides on subjects as diverse as hiking, birding and fishing in Maine.

This is an outdoor lecture, so participants are reminded to wear sturdy shoes and weather-appropriate clothing for this event. To best accommodate the group, this workshop has a limit of 20 people. The cost of this workshop is $5 for Merryspring members, $10 for nonmembers. To sign up, contact Merryspring at 236-2239 or info@merryspring.org.

Merryspring is a member-supported, nonprofit nature education center and park located at the end of Conway Road just off Route 1 by the Hannaford shopping plaza in Camden.
