Forage and Plant ID Trip on the Mayo River!
Time & Location
About The Event
Join the Dan Riverkeeper and the great folks from Eliana's Garden on a river foraging and plant ID trip! "What is that? Can I eat it?" - If those are questions you find yourself asking then we highly recommend this trip for you. Don't leave it up to chance, ask the experts! Mushrooms, plants, and trees will all be identified. What could be better than floating down the Mayo while learning about all the delicacy that nature has to offer. Float, learn and support your Dan Riverkeeper! All proceeds go directly to supporting clean, swimmable and fishable waters.
