Crossing from east to west through Prospect Park's diverse midriff we will spot a wide range of wild edible (and poisonous) plants, from lawn denizens such as plantain, dandelions and chicory to indigenous forest plants, and invasive weeds like Japanese knotweed and burdock.
Poisonous white snakeroot - Ageratina altissima
If we are lucky, we may spot a maitake mushroom. October is their month.
We meet at the park entrance at the corner of Prospect Park West and Prospect Park Southwest. The closest subways are the F and G to Prospect Park.
Confirmation emails and additional details will be sent to confirmed walkers the week before the walk.
Hen of the woods, Grifola frondosa
