  • Spend an afternoon creating a wreath from wild-harvested bittersweet to be displayed on your door, table, or mantel. The first hour of this program will be a hike through the park to harvest bittersweet vines (please bring hand pruners) and the second two hours will be spent in the cabin crafting by the fireplace. Shawn Severance will lead this workshop.

    As usual, I must point out that oriental bittersweet is a horrifying invasive species, so please don't place your wreaths outside or anywhere birds can get at them to carry off the seeds. Don't accidentally drop the berries anywhere, and don't compost the wreaths - thoroughly destroy them in a fire or bag them and trash them when you're done using them.

      Excellent point - on our hike out to the cabin we will be able to see the impact of invasive bittersweet on natural areas.

    Berries will not be going home with people, only the dead vines.
