Nature Walk in Prospect Park

We learned that many Amazonian and Andean Peruvian communities possess a rich knowledge of plant life- for food, medicine, tools, dyeing of fabrics, and other daily needs.  Spark explorers traveled through a wooded area of Prospect Park to discover new plants!  The kids learned of some edible and useful wild plants that reside right here in our own park, such as gout weed, mugwort, and plantain weeds.
