Join us in creating apple cider the old fashion way with a people powered fruit press. Help, wash, grind, press, pasteurize and best of all, taste the fresh apple cider. While going through the process we will discuss the history of apples, apple products, the apple-growing industry and the many different varieties of apples. Back by popular demand – take a taste test of over a dozen different varieties of apples grown by local orchards and place your vote for your favorite. A special THANK YOU to Ontario Orchards for supplying the apples for pressing and tasting.

Cayuga Lake is the highlight of this ride with historic markers posted along the route that help tell the story of the area from the Cayuga Nation villages to the 1779 Sullivan Expedition.

With Emerson Park at the north and Fillmore Glen State Park at the south end of the route, this ride around Owasco Lake is one of the easiest and picturesque around a Finger Lake.

Think globally and act locally in support of your environment!!! Join the Sterling Nature Center in cleaning up the Lake Ontario shore. If you cannot make it to the Sterling Nature Center then visit the American Littoral Society’s website, www.alsnyc.org, or call 1-800-449-0790 to find other beach cleanups throughout the state.

Come explore the fields, meadows and wetlands for birds, butterflies and dragonflies. All of these diverse creatures can fly but each does it in its own unique way. We will hike the Meadow Trail and visit Dragonfly Pond in search of our summer winged wildlife.
