September 22, 2018, 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM @ North Branch Nature Center
A bite of Vermont’s forgotten apples is a taste of history. Hiding in plain sight within almost every natural area and neglected back woods are abandoned apple orchards harkening to a bygone Vermont. What most nature walkers dismiss as “crabapples” are often the nearly extinct relics of the nineteenth-century heirloom varietals that made New England the global center of apple cultivation. Join NBNC naturalists on an exploration of derelict orchards to learn about the natural and cultural history of our venerable state fruit. We’ll do some wild-style apple picking, and return to the trailhead to press fresh cider and cook up our bounty into tasty treats. $35 NBNC members, $45 non-members.

Are you looking for ways to build relationships between your classroom and an author or illustrator? Have you been looking for ways to enhance your literacy program in your classroom? Are you an author or illustrator looking for authentic feedback from your intended audience?
Elementary school teacher Susan Koch and children’s author Christy Mihaly share ideas about building a meaningful relationship between a class of learners and a visiting writer or artist from the local community. They’ll discuss their experiences and tips to maximize the benefits for the class, the teacher, and the visitor, along with suggestions for program possibilities and thoughts about getting started. Classroom visits, virtual sessions, and classroom connections can add some excitement to your literacy approach while providing new perspective.
