Forager Friday at Rushton Woods Preserve

This event has been postponed from Friday, May 6 to Friday, May 13! We hope you can still make it!

Join our Stewardship Team and Restore our Roots on a nature walk through Rushton Woods Preserve and learn the best tips and tricks for sustainably foraging plant species, whether you’re looking to cultivate a specific species from seed or collect something safe for a delicious snack! Restore our Roots will teach you about the different edible plants and weeds that pop up this time of year, and they will have a special foraging cookbook available for purchase at this event.

About Restore Our Roots: Based in Downingtown, Restore our Roots is a sub-committee of the Downingtown Borough’s Parks & Recreation Committee. The group works to restore the local habitat through the usage of native plants and responsible gardening practices in hopes of uniting the community with its natural roots. Learn more about them at

All ages are welcome, and this event is rain or shine!

Please park and meet at the entrance to Rushton Conservation Center: 915 Delchester Road, Newtown Square, PA 19073
