About "Wildman" Steve Brill
Naturalist-author "Wildman" Steve Brill is America's go-to guy for foraging. He's been leading foraging tours and demos in parks and natural areas throughout the Greater NY area since 1982. His book, Identifying and Harvesting Edible and Medicinal Plants in Wild (and Not-So-Wild) Places, is considered a classic on the subject. But the world-famous environmental educator is still best known for having been handcuffed and arrested by undercover park rangers in the 1980s for eating a dandelion in Central Park!
