Arbor Lodge, Apples on WOWT 6 Outdoors

In conjunction with the apple harvest in the Nebraska City, NE area, I’ll be encouraging you and your family to visit beautiful Arbor Lodge State Historical Park in Nebraska City on this week’s WOWT 6 News Weekly Outdoor Report. Have you ever been there and toured the mansion and the grounds? Gorgeous place!

There’s a bountiful crop of apples this year at Arbor Day Farm and the other orchards in the area, too!

Thanks to the efforts of our partner, the Arbor Day Foundation, along with a host of volunteers/volunteer groups, fall living history Sundays to continue at the park! Cider pressing (below) is just one of the many different living history activities that you can see at Arbor Lodge (Oct. 18th) and one that we’ll most likely show you on the air!

See neat video and get more information about Arbor Lodge State Historical Park by tuning in to my report which airs LIVE on Omaha’s WOWT 6 News Thursdays at 6 p.m. CST during the sportscast with either Jeff Packer or Ross Jernstrom.
