Getting Hands on in the Hammond: Featured Species

Chokecherries Chokecherries can be found throughout our watershed at this time of year! The berries are edible; however, the seeds contain cyanide (similar to apple seeds), and these seeds can be toxic if eaten in large quantities. Chokecherries are a favorite of many birds in our area, and we have used chokecherries in several planting projects, as they are great for combatting erosion, while providing food for wildlife!
