University of Maine Cooperative Extension and University of New Hampshire Extension will offer a webinar for home gardeners about edible native plants in the landscape at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 24.

“Nibbling on Natives in Your Backyard and Beyond” identifies more than two dozen species of native edible wild plants suitable for adding to backyard landscapes and supporting native pollinators. Russ Cohen, expert forager and author of “Wild Plants I Have Known … and Eaten,” will lead the workshop, according to a news release from the extension office in Orono.

Registration is required; a $5 donation is optional. To register to attend live or receive a link to the recording, visit
