The Alewife Reservation is a hidden gem, a small urban wilderness in Cambridge. Jules Kobek will be helping participants identify wild edible and medicinal plants growing there. We will also visit the Silver Maple Forest, an area abutting the reservation that is slated for destruction to make way for development. In addition to tips on foraging, we'll talk about ways to help save the Silver Maple Forest.
Going by T? From the Alewife T-station passenger pickup area, cross the street ( Alewife Station Access Road) and head north, toward Arlington. After crossing a bridge over a stream, look for a sandy path on the left. Follow the path to the parking lot, where we'll be waiting.
There will be signs and/or a guide at the Alewife T-station pick-up area to direct you to the reservation meeting spot.
Jules Kobek, an experienced forager and instructor, is co-founder of DIO (Do-It-Ourselves) Skillshare.
This event is sponsored by Friends of the Alewife Reservation. For more info: http://www.friendsofalewifereservation.org or call Jules at[masked]-2340.
The path might be muddy, and there could be ticks, so dress appropriately.
