Nature’s Salad Bar: The Hardwood Forest

10 a.m.-2 p.m., May 18, Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwa Community College, Hayward

Join other inquisitive people as we wander thru a lovely mesic hardwood forest filled with wildflowers.  A mesic forest consists of trees like sugar maple and basswood that like medium soil moisture conditions.  Over time the soils there develop into rich black loams, as the trees pump nutrients to the soil surface via their fallen leaves and this in turn favors tender delicious spring greens.  We shall identify and taste a number of these edibles (and identify the ones that aren’t) and collect enough of them to stuff an omelet. By then everyone should have an appetite, so we’ll travel back to the college kitchen and prepare scrumptious omelets for lunch.  Everyone should have a great time and no one will leave hungry.
