Though we go through the change of season every year, I still find it difficult to accept everything dying back and that the more succulent edibles unavailable until late February or early March.

For the more intrepid forager, braving cold water and harvesting cat tail root and wapato is worth the effort. Both can be eaten raw, but are best cooked.

Still, for the rest of the season you can also dig chicory and dandelion root. Right now sugar content is high in the root stock, so both can be eaten raw or dried and ground into coffee substitutes.

All Wild Arkansas walks are cancelled until late February or early March; or better said, until we see some new growth.

Next year, we will explore the Ozark National Forest. If you would like to participate in the first walks, send an email requesting an add to our notification list.

Our email address has changed to wildarkansas1 at yahoo dot com. If you are using the old address please change this.
