We will be exploring Inwood Hill Park (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inwood_Hill_Park) for 4 hours with Steve Brill (http://www.wildmanstevebrill.com/Private%20Tour%20Blurbs/Resume.html?.html), learning about foraging and harvesting along the way. Here's the schedule of events. (http://www.wildmanstevebrill.com/Public%20Tour%20Stuff/Tour%20Announcements/Inwood.3.22.14.html)

"Wildman" Steve Brill (http://www.wildmanstevebrill.com/Private%20Tour%20Blurbs/Resume.html?.html), an environmental educator, started his weekend public wild food & ecology tours throughout greater NY, the northeast, and other regions in 1982. All his tours and presentations (http://www.wildmanstevebrill.com/) feature a great diversity and abundance of common, renewable, seasonal edible and medicinal wild plants or mushrooms.

Inwood Hill Park (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inwood_Hill_Park) is a city-owned and maintained public park in Inwood, Upper Manhattan, New York City, operated by the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation. It stretches along the Hudson River from Dyckman Street to the northern tip of the island. Inwood Hill Park's (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inwood_Hill_Park) densely folded, glacially scoured topography contains the largest remaining forest land on Manhattan Island. Unlike other Manhattan parks, Inwood Hill Park (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inwood_Hill_Park) is largely natural (non-landscaped)

How to get there: By subway, take A train to Dyckeman St. (200 St.). Cross Broadway and enter the playground. (Please note the playground is NOT in Inwood Park.)
