Break out your nature journal to record the bees, butterflies, flowers and fall colors of autumn at Dodge Nature Center. Together with Dodge naturalists, you’ll explore a new aspect of the fascinating lives of pollinators. This week, discover how the interaction between honeybees and apple trees in the spring allows us to enjoy the harvest of honey and apples in the autumn. In the Dodge orchard, you’ll compare the size, color, and taste of a variety of apples and watch as apples are pressed for fresh cider.

This program is designed for families and children ages 3+. Participants ages 13 years and younger must be accompanied by a registered adult from the same household. Adults are free.
Registration deadline: Friday, October 16
