Party in the Pawpaw Patch

September 24, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

- Free

Join us way down yonder for a Pawpaw party! We are excited to host this celebration of our only native tropical fruit tree! With many colorful nicknames such as the hillbilly mango, the pawpaw’s cultural flavor is as intriguing as its taste. We will give a brief talk on the ecology and cultural history of the species before we meander on over to the pawpaw patch to pick fruits to sample. Warning: You MIGHT be encouraged to participate in a sing-along 🙂

Cost: Free!

Age: This program is intended for adults. For families with children looking to learn more about pawpaws, join us for the Nature School and/or Family Nature Hikes programs in September and October.

Weather policy: Date and time subject to change dependent on weather. Please check your email for updates on the morning of the event.

What to wear: Dress for the weather and wear sturdy shoes.

What to bring: Water bottle, hat, sunscreen, bug spray, camera, binoculars, and an appetite for pawpaws!
