Wildsight hosts apple harvest days

Unpicked fruit on local trees is a wildlife attractant

This fall, Wildsight hosted community apple harvest days in Kimberley and Cranbrook. A group of volunteers picked apples from unloved local trees and then invited everyone to come help with the apple juicing process. Seeing the apple juice start to flow from the press is always an exciting moment for the kids. The harvest days are a chance for anyone to try out Wildsight’s free loaner equipment including orchard ladders, pickers, apple juice presses, apple sauce makers, and dehydrators. There are still plenty of apples on local trees and it isn’t too late to make yourself some juice. See wildsight.ca/apples for all the details.
