Naturalist and foraging expert Tom Seymour will lead an autumn foraging workshop at Merryspring Nature Center Saturday, Oct. 3 at 10 a.m.

In this interactive walk, Seymour will guide guests around Merryspring to look for fall plants, fruits, and fungi that can make for a tasty meal or a useful medicine. Attendees are encouraged to bring a camera, notebook, and plenty of questions to this workshop.

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

This program is outdoors. Guests must wear weather-appropriate clothing, sturdy shoes, and be prepared to walk at least one hour. All guests are asked to wear face-masks during this event.
