Apple Science

  • Saturday, September 14, 2019 – 9:00 am12:00 pm

Did you know that North Carolina has over 200 commercial apple operations and that we rank 7th in apple production in the United States? Come explore "nature's toothbrush" to find out more about apples and their role in North Carolina's agriculture. You'll also get a chance to make some tasty treats made from apples!

Bring a friend and start that "apple a day" motto with this fun Saturday morning!
