PLEASE NOTE, participants are required to pre-register for all foraging walks at least 48 hours in advance. Walk-ins are not permitted as there is limited space for each walk. Registration is non-refundable.

Location is subject to change but will remain in the northern or southern Berkshires as originally planned. Registered participants will receive confirmation of location via email the week of the walk. Please wear appropriate clothing and shoes for hiking and weather conditions.

The walks will be led by instructors who will focus on responsible harvesting techniques, recipes, and the history of foraging in the Berkshires. One goal of the walks is to educate the public on ecosystem balance and sustainability.
