We’ve waited all summer for ripe pawpaws, so come out to celebrate and enjoy a sample of America’s largest native fruit. Members of the Virginia Master Naturalists Peninsula Chapter will lead the fun along with representatives from the Butterfly Society of Virginia, Virginia Bee Society, Hampton Roads Bird Club, Leave No Trace, Newport News Waterworks, Foxy Lady Press, and Peninsula Tree Stewards. There will be information tables, talks, kids’ activities, nature trail tours, and live music—all FREE. You might even win a baby pawpaw tree! Tours of the historic house are available with regular admission.
