The La Verne Heritage Foundation is presenting its fourteenth annual “Spring Orange Squeeze” at Heritage Park. We are reserving the morning hours on weekdays for preschool and elementary school children to come and experience a little bit of what life was like during the orange picking time in the late 1800’s. 

Our “Spring Squeeze” field trip at the Weber Ranch will feature a tour in the historic Weber House, a tractor ride through the orange grove, a demonstration of how the oranges were picked, the purpose of a smudge pot, the importance of a windmill. The children will also be able to squeeze an orange and taste the fresh juice, and use the orange rind to plant a small flower to take home. If your group is interested in a tour please call (909) 293-9005 or check out the web site at http://www.laverneheritage.org. DATES: March 7 through March 17
TIME: 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM
