Preserve the Fruit Belt…..our field trip

On Friday all of Clarke’s 4th graders boarded a bus and headed for The Heritage Museum and Cultural Center (formally The Heritage Center.) We toured the exhibit “World’s Largest: The Benton Harbor Fruit Market and Southwest Michgan’s Fruit Belt” which presents the history of the fruit industry in Southwest Michgan. We also listened to a grower and saw a video about the apple industry here in Michigan. Check out for additional information about the history of the fruit belt.

Students, what information did you learn by visiting the exhibit? What can you tell me about the importance of the fruitbelt in Southwest Michigan? Post a comment!
