As a naturalist and environmental educator, "Wildman" Steve Brill has been a leading expert on the identification, ecological harvesting, and food and medicinal uses of North America's renewable edible/medicinal wild plants and mushrooms since he began leading tours in and around New York City in 1982. His critically acclaimed Identifying and Harvesting Edible and Medicinal Plants in Wild (and Not So Wild Places) (Perennial Currents), and The Wild Vegetarian Cookbook (Harvard Common Press) are classics in the field.
He has been covered often in The New York Times and has appeared on The CBS Evening News and the Late Show with David Letterman, but he's best known for having been arrested and handcuffed for eating a dandelion in Central Park.
He speaks and leads tours focusing on common, renewable edible/medicinal wild plants and mushrooms, associated science, ecology, food preparation, history, folklore, and mythology, seasoned with his anecdotes and humor.
