BLT’s Walks & Talks program is in full swing! Events run from early spring through the fall. Check back often because we’ll keep adding more explorations of our spectacular natural environment.

 

 

 

Edible Plants Walk               Wednesday, June 27, 4-6 pm                         Cotuit

Join Dave Scandurra and Marina Matos of Edible Landscapes for a “Wild Edible and Plant ID Walk” at Eagle Pond Sanctuary. Dave and Marina are experts regarding the local flora of Cape Cod. Dave’s focus is on edible plants, and Marina knows the wild medicinal plants and their uses. They are always excited to share their knowledge; they believe that the more we know about our local/native plants, the less likely we are to destroy them!
