In the 1830s, the prairie and marsh surrounding the San Jacinto Battleground were full of edible plants. Residents at San Jacinto, first Native Americans, then Texian settlers, relied on these plants for food. Thanks to the hard work from our prairie restoration volunteers, many of these native plants have returned to San Jacinto.
On Saturday, September 17, foraging expert Dr. Mark “Merriwether” Vorderbruggen of Foraging Texas will lead a guided walk at the Battleground and teach participants how to find and identify wild edible plants. Space is limited, so get your tickets today!
