Man Eating Bugs?? Check it out on 8/21 at 6:30 at Bear Creek Nature Center

This Friday, August 21, at 6:30pm, there will be a great Wild Edibles class at Bear Creek Nature Center.

There will be 3 of us teaching that night. You’ll have the opportunity to learn about edible plants, mushrooms, and bugs. Yes, you read that right. I said BUGS!

Plus, you’ll get to sample some treats from each category.

Before you start grossing out about eating bugs, remember that there are many cultures and civilizations on almost every continent which eats bugs, either alive or cooked. I’m certainly not saying that I enjoy eating bugs, but I have done it at this class.

So, if you’re adventurous, or you just really like unique gastronimic experiences, then head out to Bear Creek Nature Center this Friday and join us for the class. I’ll be bringing a salad mixed with some wild plants and some “lemonade” made with a very tart berry which grows abundantly at BCNC. Ken will be bringing some mushrooms cooked to perfection, and Todd is the man with the bugs!

Hope to see you there.
