Spent some time this morning at Apple Ridge Farm, the impressive youth retreat and conference center near Copper Hill. Peter Lewis, director of the farm, bought the land some 30 years ago and has spent the last 20 or so developing a camp for kids along with five miles of nature trails, environmental education and more.

Future plans call for a pool and expanded educational programs for the kids who get to experience nature first hand.

I’m donating some nature photography to the farm for use in their new environmental sciences building and will look for other ways to help. Apple Ridge is worth supporting.
