Each spring, The Institute presents a series of related programs.

Our unifying theme is Enjoy Franklin County, PA.
Admission is free and all are welcome.
Presented by Dr. David Foster, Professor of Biology & Environmental Science, Messiah University
This final presentation in the series explores foraging in Franklin County.
A local author and forager, Foster has more than 20 years experience in our forests and will take us through a sensory journey of memorable plants, and discuss their ecology along with why they might be desirable to forage.
Foster has written two books on the subject: Field Guide to Edible Wild Plants, and Field Guide to Medicinal Wild Plants.
He will explore how to forage legally and safely in the backyards, woods, and parks of Franklin County, and talk about some of the edible plants you are likely to find.
