ILLINOIS (KFVS) -

If you’ve ever had the urge to forage for food in the great outdoors, here is your opportunity.

Wild edible enthusiast Alex Holmes will present a program called "Eating the Woods", an introduction to wild edible plants, on Saturday August 13 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Giant City Nature Trail.

The event is open to all ages, but space is limited.

Participants are urged to bring a water bottle to stay hydrated, rain wear and a pen and notepad to take notes.

There is a one-mile hike, as well, so participants are encouraged to wear appropriate shoes.

You can reserve your spot by calling (618)-457-4836.
