Wild Edible & Medicinal Plants

Learn about the many plants that grow along the trail. 

Dr. Burgess will be leading a trek Saturday June 24, 2017 at 10am, to teach you all about the plants along Saranac River Trail and their many uses. Come learn which plants are a tasty addition to a salad, and which ones are useful when you have an upset stomach. Dr. Burgess's talk covers the plant's history, uses, and optimum harvesting times and techniques. You're sure to walk away from this trek with a new outlook on the plants you see everytime you walk the trail. 

Please meet at the Saranac River Trail sign toward the end of George Angell Drive in Plattsburgh, NY (turn onto Angell Drive from Rugar Street at Plattsburgh High School). 

We look forward to seeing you there!
