Plant Discovery Walk with YMCA

Princeton’s forests are filled with a diversity of beautiful, beneficial, and sometimes delicious plants. Earlier this week, an eager group of 20 “Kamping Kids” discovered that truth at Mountain Lakes Preserve. The YMCA camp group joined FOPOS Naturalist, AeLin Compton, for an Edible Plants Walk. Together, they hiked through Mountain Lakes’ trails, stopping to explore some of the Preserves’ most interesting and edible plants. They feasted on wineberries (an invasive relative of the domestic raspberry), sampled jewelweed seeds, wood sorrels, and many more.
