Milwaukee, WI (Sept. 16, 2016) – Freshly made apple cider, apple treats, live music, and guided hikes through the woods and prairie are highlights of Cider Sunday at Wehr Nature Center, Sunday, Oct. 2, from 11:30 a.m.–4:30 p.m. Wehr is located at 9701 W. College Ave., in Whitnall Park.

Admission includes a variety of family-friendly activities. Using a hand-crank cider press and sampling the results, learning how apple butter is made over an open fire and taste-testing the final product, hiking the multi-hued woods, and listening to the music of the Bluegrass All Stars and the Thistledown Thunders are all included in the $3 admission. Some make-and-take fall crafts are included with admission, and others have a small materials fee.

An assortment of apples will be available for sampling and for purchase. Patterson Orchards & Farm Market of New Berlin will be selling selections from their 33 varieties of locally-grown apples. The distance from orchard to market is under four miles.

In addition to sweet apple crepes and chocolate-apple brownies, lunch-menu items will be available for purchase to keep families fueled for the afternoon.

Friends of Wehr presents the annual fundraising event the first Sunday in October. An old-fashioned cake walk, a cross between a raffle and musical chairs, yields homemade cakes to the winners. General proceeds support programs of the Nature Center. This year a fall-themed silent auction and raffle will support the Nature Center’s accessibility project.

Parking for the event is $3 per car.
