Our first field trip was a great success! We went to the Apple Hill Orchard in Morganton, NC.
First we made a stop at Freedom Park to try out their climbing, sliding, swinging fun.
We were glad our student intern could come, too.
Then we got back on the bus for a short ride to the orchard. This was the first bus trip for some.
Here we are!
Then we found out about bees and honey -- they are very helpful for apple trees.
We took a look at the very COOL storage room next -- it made us shiver!
Then we got to taste the cider and 2 kinds of apples. We even got to fill a bag with apples to bring home!
Now it was time for the last adventure -- a ride in a wagon through the apple orchard. There were many kinds of apples growing on the trees.
