Junior Forester Program @ Cradle of Forestry Heritage Site
Jun 14 @ 10:30 am – Aug 9 @ 12:30 pm
Junior Forester Program @ Cradle of Forestry Heritage Site | Pisgah Forest | North Carolina | United States

Forestry goes beyond studying trees and there are forest scientists who study just about everything between plants and animals. Junior Foresters will explore what a scientist needs to know when studying insects, reptiles, or water quality, and the skills they need to have such as orienteering or map reading.

This year’s themes are inspired by Natural Inquirer, who offers free materials for educators and children in English and Spanish.

Each youth receives a Junior Forester badge upon taking the “Conservation Pledge.”

Junior Foresters are invited to any number of the themed weeks. The program is designed for boys and girls ages 8-12. Please register ahead of time by calling 828-877-3130. Wednesdays June 14 – August 9

The tours will consist of visits to the Pisgah Tavern, Oskar Blues Brewery, and Brevard Brewing Company.

In addition, Pisgah Tavern is located at The Hub bikes and outdoor shop. “Although not a brewery we decided to include Pisgah Tavern on the tour because of its wide variety of regional microbrews and its unique status as a bicycle shop, outdoor store, and bar,” says Joe Moerschbaecher, Pura Vida Adventures owner.

The second stop will be at Oskar Blues Brewery, currently the largest brewery in the Carolinas.  At Oskar Blues, participants will have the opportunity to take a tour of the brewery and learn more about the history of the company.  After finishing the tour, participants will be able to sample a pint or flight of beers at the Oskar Blues Tasty Weasel taproom.

Then, the tour will head to Brevard Brewing Company, located in downtown Brevard.  Here participants will have an opportunity to see how Brevard Brewing Company brews beer.  After completing the tour, participants may once again choose to have a pint or flight of beers at Brevard Brewing Company’s tasting room next to the brewery.

The tour will end with participants being provided with a ride back to their local accommodations.

Trips include tours of the breweries, two tastings at each brewery, and transportation. Beers can be purchased separately while at the bar or tasting rooms.  Cost is $40 a person for groups of 3 or less and $35 a person for groups of 4 or more. Tours run daily starting at 5 p.m. and end between 8 and 8:30 p.m.  Advanced reservations are highly recommended.  Email contact@pvadventures.com or call 772-579-0005 for more information or to book a tour.
