Awesome Apple Adventures 2009 was a great success!
This year on Sep. 23 & 24 we hosted 32 second grade classes from the Wenatchee and Eastmont School districts, as well as St. Joe's and St. Paul's (approximately 800 kids, and 125+ adults). This learning opportunity in an outdoor classroom included stations manned by WSU, USDA, and the Wenatchee School District.
