We hope you are able to join us next Wednesday evening, August 27, 2014 at 6:30 pm for a walk on the 1K loop around the Schenley oval in Pittsburgh, PA.

In one loop around the oval we saw over 20 plants (and mushrooms!) we can discuss including Dryad’s saddle (this early spring mushroom comes back in the fall!), red clover, dandelion, burdock, motherwort, Hawthorn, lambs quarters, acorns, plantain, wood sorrel and so much more!
