Maple Sugar Madness!

Date/Time

Mar 1, 2014 to Mar 29, 2014

This event occurs weekly, on Saturday.

Description

Join us to experience an old-fashioned New England tradition — making maple syrup! 

From tapping a tree to tasting delicious maple syrup, you will have hands-on participation in every step of the syrup making process. Our environmental educators will help you to build tree ID skills and learn the parts of a tree and their functions, use measuring tools to find an appropriate tree to tap, use historical and modern tree tapping tools, learn the history of maple sugaring including Native American legends and discover the math and chemical/physical science in the boiling process.

The program involves a 20-minute walk to our sugar house—please note that you will be hiking back up hill after the program. Please wear boots and dress   appropriately for the weather. Snowshoes will be provided as needed—bring your own if you have them!
