Pioneer Museum’s “The Historic Ed Young Apple Orchard and Ranch Trek.” It all started in 1882, when Lander rancher Ed Young planted his first apple trees, the first planted in Wyoming, on his homestead on the Little Popo Agie River. By 1904, Young’s orchard of more than 2,000 trees was said to produce 60,000 pounds that season. That same year, the newspapers and promoters began calling Lander “Apple City,” and Ed Young the “Apple King of Wyoming.” The Pioneer Museum’s “Historic Ed Young Apple Orchard and Ranch Adventure Trek” takes you to the site of the apple orchards that made Lander “The Apple City.”
$12 per person. Meet at the Pioneer Museum (1443 W. Main St.) at 1 p.m. to take a bus to the site. Reservations are required. Call (307) 332-3339 for details.
