You might be surprised how much of our wild flora in the Pikes Peak region is edible. You might also be surprised how much can make you sick. So learn from an expert before you start grazing. Join local edible-plant enthusiast Tracy Bookman for a presentation and hike from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday at Bear Creek Nature Center, 245 Bear Creek Road. Fee is $3-$4. Call 520-6387 for reservations.
