Environmental Education

Environmental educator and author “Wildman” Steve Brill, will give a presentation on edible wild plants and lead a foraging tour on the estate grounds of the Suffolk County Vanderbilt Museum on Sunday, April 7, from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm.

“The Vanderbilt Museum grounds—with cultivated areas, fields, thickets, and woods—is a bonanza for wild foods,” Brill said, “and everything the group will be finding is renewable.”

Participants should bring plastic bags for veggies and herbs, paper bags for mushrooms and a small hand shovel. Everyone should wear closed shoes, long pants, and long sleeves for protection from poison ivy and ticks, plus an extra layer of clothing in case it gets cold.
