Register early and save $10 on the following classes, which meet at Plymouth High School, 125 Highland Ave., unless otherwise noted:

Foraging for Health, Nourishment and Fun! Learn about seasonal wild plants and how to use them for food and medicine. Get tips for identifying, harvesting, and preparing wild plants. The evening will include an herb walk (outside if weather allows), as well as samples of seasonal wild edibles and recipes. Class will meet with Linda Conroy, herbalist and owner of Moonwise Herbs, from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, April 27 in the Food Science & Agriculture Center; fee is $33 until April 14, then $43.

Kayaking: Those ages 6 and up can experience this great recreational activity using provided kayaks (weight limit 250), paddles and life preservers. Meet with instructor Andrew Arentsen from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Mondays from April 24 to May 8 on the Mullet River; fee is $20 per person until April 14, then $30. A second Kayaking opportunity will be offered on area lakes from 9 to 10:30 a.m. Saturdays from July 15 to 29; fee is $20 until June 30, or sign up for both Kayaking sessions by April 14 and pay $32.

Spring BB League: This is a six-week recreational league for the fun of playing basketball. Call your own fouls, though there will be an adult supervisor and scorekeeper. Sign up with family and friends; teams are maxed at 15 players. Games will be from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Wednesdays from May 3 to June 7 in the Riverview gym; fee is $100/team until April 21, then $110.

Community Ed & Rec also is partnering with the Family Resource Center to offer Kids in the Kitchen, for children up to age 5 accompanied by an adult. Participants will make toddler friendly foods and hopefully inspire a love of real food. Class will meet with Renee Wachuta, FRC parent educator, and Carrie Caselton Lowe, schools nutrition & wellness coordinator, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 26 at Plymouth High School; fee is $8 per family, due to the FRC by April 19.
