Did you know that every part of a blackberry bush is technically edible? Learning about this popular berry and tea making family will give you the best opportunity to pick fresh, ripe berries or prime, sweet flowers by learning about their growing seasons, habits and their key ID features along with how to care for unruly brambles. Your forest edges will become a bevy of the sweetest foraging hauls after taking this ID class. TERRAIN: This is a protected marshland area maintained by Ecotone. The trail can be marshy, so we do recommend hiking boots or waterproof shoes. Lots of wildlife live here serenely including hawks, and you’ll see this reforested marsh come to life in every season with berries, brambles, flowers and aquatic life. There may be a short walk on a lazy road to access the marsh trail. PARKING & FACILITIES: Follow the long gravel drive along the vineyard, and park in front of the tasting room. Do not park at the house. Bathroom available when the winery opens at noon, and we encourage you to support their business with a purchase. WHAT TO BRING: We always recommend dressing for the weather and being prepared to hike a bit outdoors. You should also bring your phone to take pictures with and a notebook. Large parts of this location are unshaded. Be sure to wear sunscreen and bring a hat for shade.
