BROOKFIELD — Have you ever emerged from the couch, energized by a fresh dose of excitement delivered via an episode of "Man vs. Wild" or "Survivorman," and wanted to test your own ability to forage for meals in the wilds of nature?

If so, the latest program offered by the Opacum Land Trust is just for you.

On Thursday, June 25, Opacum, which stewards land in Sturbridge, Brimfield, Holland, Wales, Southbridge, Charlton, the Brookfields and more, is hosting an early evening Wild Edibles Hike, led by Russ Cohen.

Cohen wrote the 2006 book "Wild Plants I Have Known… and Eaten," which identifies more than 100 edible plants that grow throughout New England.
