Get to Know Which Plants are Safe to Eat at Wild Edibles Workshop

Have you ever wondered which wild plants are edible? Join the Wild Edibles Workshop at the W.K. Kellogg Bird Sanctuary to learn all about wild edible plants.

The workshop will be led by the Sanctuary staff and Dr. Danielle Zoellner, and will begin with a brief educational presentation in the Sanctuary’s auditorium. The group will walk the Lake Loop trail and participants will look for tasty plants as a team and learn about the plants that they encounter. Participants will receive informational materials and enjoy a wild edible picnic!

The workshop will be held on September 9 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. The cost of attendance is $25/member, and $35/non-member. Registration is required by September 1, and participation is limited to 20 individuals, so early registration is encouraged. 

The W.K. Kellogg Bird Sanctuary is located at 12685 East C Avenue, one mile north of M-89 and just west of 40th Street. To learn more, visit birdsanctuary.kbs.msu.edu, email birdsanctuary@kbs.msu.edu, or call (269)671-2510.

The W.K. Kellogg Bird Sanctuary is part of the W.K. Kellogg Biological Station. Celebrate with us our legacy of conservation as we mark 90 years since W.K. Kellogg donated the lands that now make up KBS to Michigan State University. Our commitment to research, education and outreach stands on the foundation of W.K. Kellogg’s vision for cutting-edge science and learning.

As MSU’s largest off-campus educational complex, we’ve put our land-grant values into practice as we’ve provided the public with examples of science’s crucial role in sustaining natural and managed communities for nearly a hundred years. As we look forward, our students and faculty are working to understand and solve real-world environmental problems for a better tomorrow. To learn more about KBS, visit us online at kbs.msu.edu.
