Grape Picking and Honey Harvest Party this weekend at the Greenburgh Nature Center

‘Tis the season to reap the harvest of vines and hives at the Greenburgh Nature Center (GNC). On Sunday, September 12 at 2 p.m., senior Naturalist Dean Fausel will guide visitors through a “demonstration” grape arbor where the picking is good. He’ll later help everyone make grape juice using a hand-operated press. The harvest from the beehives will be extracted by GNC Beekeeper H. Peet Foster, indoors and away from the active hives. There will be a free tasting of a variety of grape and honey-based treats, and fresh-from-the-hive honey will be available for purchase. The cost is $3 for GNC members, $7 for non-members.

The Greenburgh Nature Center is a 33-acre woodland preserve with trails, pond, gardens, and outdoor animal exhibits, including a birds of prey aviary as well as indoor exhibits.

The Center is located at 99 Dromore Road, off Central Park Avenue, in Scarsdale, NY. For more information, call 914.723.3470 or visit greenburghnaturecenter.org.
