Cranberry Picking at Vermilion Point
Saturday, October 7 11am-2pm
Vermilion Point Nature Preserve, Chippewa Co.
Early October can be one of the nicest times to visit Vermilion Point. With luck, there will be blue skies, no frost, warm water, peak fall color, and no bugs. Tom Allan, who lived at Vermilion Point for eight years, will lead a cranberry picking field trip to this remote preserve. He’ll cover a little history on the old cranberry farm and the life-saving station, and a little bit of wetland and interdunal ecology. Bring your own bucket, and fill it with wild cranberries!
