Hunt for wild black cherries in Central Park this weekend

Written by

Thanks to the vast amount of eateries and late-night bites in the city, New Yorkers never have to try too hard to hunt for food. And with delivery services like Seamless, we really put zero effort into stuffing our pie holes.

But if you want to play the role of hunter-gatherer and learn how to forage for food the old-fashioned way, local “Wildman” Steve Brill can show you how. You don’t have to travel upstate and find a wooded area, either. You can pick black cherries right here in Central Park! At 11:45am on Sunday, August 27, join Brill for one of his infamous four-hour foraging tours, at which you’ll pick black cherries, Cornelian cherries, wild greens, mushrooms and more.

Roughing it doesn’t sound so bad! FYI: There is a suggested donation for the tour ($20 for adults, $10 for kids under the age of 12). For more details, click here
