About Our Educational Presentations

During any field trip that offers an educational presentation, such as “Apple School,” or story time your group or class will be given an age-appropriate lesson.

About “Apple School”

This presentation will include the “Seed to Seed” life cycle of the apple tree, covering the relationship of honeybees to an orchard, pollination, fertilization, and irrigation. We will demonstrate the correct way to pick an apple from the tree to prevent damage to the apple or the tree. The presentation will be tailored according to the age or grade-level of the students. Your group will also have available 7 self guided educational stations.

“The Apple School was very interesting to our kids. It covered the SOLs necessary for that content area. The information sent to us was helpful and useful with our students. All of the staff was very friendly and eager to make it a pleasant experience.”
