We love this hyper local and relevant Field Guide by The Outside Institute. Covering each season in the Hudson & Upper Delaware Valleys, this 128-page field guide provides an accessible introduction to more than 50 of the most prevalent summer flora, fauna and fungi in the region.


The Field Guide is full of detailed illustrations, clear descriptions for identification, facts about medicinal, craft and culinary usage and a handful of recipes highlighting wild flavors.


Volume I - Summer

Volume II - Spring

Volume III - Fall/Winter



The Outside Institute was founded in 2017 in the Upper Delaware Valley to foster a greater connection to the Earth. Their year-round program includes guided nature walks, forest immersion, sustainable foraging education, wildcrafting workshops and botanical mixology.
