Event: Orange picking

January 06, 2011

Orange picking at citrus groves was once as important to Southern Californians as bargain hunting at the Grove is to them today. Reconnect with the Golden State's past through the tactile joys of picking oranges in La Verne's Heritage Park. The La Verne Heritage Foundation supplies the bags and picking accoutrements; visitors are responsible only for a drive to harvest. La Verne Heritage Foundation, 5001 Via De Mansion, La Verne. Free. Saturdays, 9 a.m.-3 p.m. (909) 593-2862. http://www.laverneheritage.org.

Orange picking: In Weekend Picks in the Jan. 6 Calendar, an item on orange picking in La Verne's Heritage Park said visitors were responsible only for the drive to the location. In fact, the oranges are $5 per bag.
