Cranberries, also known as 'sassamanesh" and "ibimi," to people of the First Nations, thrive in growing conditions that most plants would avoid--acidic soil, lower temperatures, and few nutrients. In fact, Vitamin C rich cranberries are one of just a handful of cultivated fruits native to this country. They're also favorites on holiday dinner tables and make delicious treats. In this online presentation, we'll take a virtual walk through cranberry country and examine the enormous impact cranberry bogs have on landscapes in Southeastern Massachusetts, similar to Mass Audubon Tidmarsh Wildlife Sanctuary. You'll also receive a delicious cranberry scone recipe, which we encourage you to bake and enjoy during the presentation, creating a one-of-a-kind multi-sensory experience.
