Maintenance on the Bay-to-Bay Trail by
Jim Crawford & Peter Lee
The November Ride
It's time to find the
Wintergreen (Gaultheria procumbens).

Wintergreen is a small native shrub
found throughout Southampton's woods.
In the spring that plant produces white
flowers, but now it is spectacular, if tiny.

Look for it on the forest floor near the
pines.

Its berries are bright red and edible.
Inside they white and rather fleshy.

The Algonquins used them as a cold
remedy and used the leaves to make a
tea.
