It’s Apple Cider Time at the Great Swamp Outdoor Education Center
As apples ripen on the trees and fall colors brighten the land, come to the Great Swamp Outdoor Education Center in Chatham Township to enjoy a day for sweet apple cidering. Learn the apple’s place in history and in the natural world, as locally grown apples are pressed to make sweet cider right before your eyes.  It’s so much fun to take part in the hands-on process by helping to prepare and grind the apples, turning the old-fashioned press, and collecting the cider. Discover that you been looking at apples upside down your entire life, that a flower must come before a fruit, and many more amazing facts.  This engaging experience is topped off with a delicious sample of fresh, homemade cider!

Mark your calendar for the Apple Cidering Demos, and make it a family fall tradition.  Come to the Great Swamp Outdoor Education Center in Chatham Township for Apple Cidering Demos on Saturdays: November 8, 22, and 29  and Sundays: November 9, 23, and 30.  These hour-long demonstrations cost $3 per person and designed to engage, involve, and educate all ages.  Preregistration is not necessary. For more information, please call 973.635.6629.
