A historic apple orchard located at Central Wyoming College’s Sinks Canyon Center has received funds to help replenish deteriorating heritage apple trees that can be grown in Wyoming.
Funds will allow for planting of new apple and other fruit trees, pruning and spraying existing heritage apple trees, improving the irrigation system, constructing a deer-proof fence around the perimeter of the orchard and adding educational signage about the project.
In addition, there will be community workshops on orchard restoration, tree grafting and tree planting. The project will also provide internship opportunities for CWC students interested in the project.
All workshops are free and taught by Dr. Steve Miller, University of Wyoming Professor of Botany.
