Sheridan's Green Apple Day of Service

October 12, 2019

We hope to have Scouts and their families help prepare our Outdoor Classroom for the winter, but we also plan to schedule University of Nebraska-Lincoln students to help provide nature enrichment activities for younger children. We might also be able to offer a Composting Workshop through UNL Extension Services if Master Gardeners are able to join us that day.
