Edible Plant Beach Walk @ Discovery Park

During weekend of July 20th/21st, it's low tide at the beach around 9:30-11:30am. We'll go out on Saturday morning and track down a trained naturalist from the Seattle Aquarium to help us identify which seaweeds are edible. I'll bring info on harvesting permits and safe places to harvest. If anyone has a good beach identification guide, please bring it to share.  Last time I was at low tide a beach naturalist helped me identify nori, sugar kelp, sea lettuce, and maidenhair sea lettuce among other non-edibles. The clams were squirting everywhere, and we saw mussels and crabs too.

This walk is for anyone interested in learning and sharing information on our local edible and medicinal plants. Let's help each other identify the plants we know and share our experience.

Rain or shine! Bring your good beach walking shoes; the rocks can be a bit slick and slimy.

The exact meetup location will be announced as we get closer.

    Without more info, I will park above at the parks info building and walk to the beach....it take about 1/2 hour to walk. I will be looking for people at the beach - a group of about a dozen with a naturalist! I hope to see you all.....
