This upcoming weekend, I’ll be guiding a hike for the SVTNHM. Here’s a little bit of information from the museum, and links to the event. Hope to see some of you there.
“Christopher Russell of the School of the Forest will visit the Southern Vermont Natural History Museum www.vermontmuseum.org for an in-depth look at identifying winter plants with a focus on foraged teas. Using a tripod fire rig, we will make and sample wild teas after an exploration of the winter plants of Hogback Mountain. We will meet at the Museum (@ the Hogback Scenic Overlook) and then hike onto the preserve. Expect this program to last from 2-3 hours and be sure to dress appropriately for the weather. Watch the Museum facebook page for updated trail and weather conditions. Donations are requested; masks and appropriate Social Distancing are required. Space is limited so please register with the Museum (802) 464 0048″
The hike will start at 1:00 pm on Saturday February 13th and we’ll be out for two to three hours looking at different wild teas available in winter, as well as how to set up a tripod rig in order to make them. It’ll be a fun time, in a gorgeous spot, so hopefully, we’ll see some of you there. Space is limited due to social distancing requirements, so reserve your spot soon.
