Regular walking footwear is all that’s needed – binoculars and cameras are welcome.
June 4, 1-3 p.m. at Beaver Brook Nature Center.
Go on a treasure hunt to find scented herbs, trees and bushes in the fields, forest and garden that can be used as food and medicine. We’ll enjoy their tastes and smells, make an herbal soda, a toothbrush and herbal, honey candy then end with a game to challenge your senses. Play a blindfold game to try to recognize plants by scent! Register online at www.beaverbrook.org. $10 per person/ $25 family max.
