LEWISBORO, N.Y. -- Lewisboro Land Trust's annual Leon Levy Environmental Lecture will be held Sunday, April 10, at the Katonah Village Library.
The lecture, which is funded by the Jerome Levy Foundation, will feature author Ellen Zachos, who wrote "Backyard Foraging: 65 Familiar Plants You Didn’t Know You Could Eat."
Zachos is a Harvard graduate and longtime instructor at the New York Botanical Garden. She writes regularly for the National Gardening Association and Edible magazine.
On Saturday, June 25, there will be a follow-up to this lecture -- a hands-on, in-field hike with Steve Brill at Mountain Lake Preserve to find these edibles.
The event is co-sponsored by Lewisboro Land Trust and North Salem Open Land Foundation. Visit www.lewisborolandtrust.org for more information.
The lecture will be from 3-4:30 p.m.
The Katonah Village Library is at 26 Bedford Road, Katonah.
