Maple Syrup Project

100121_2127_tapping504.CR2

Each year at the end of January, we tap local maple trees, collect sap, and host a 2-day public boil-down event turning that sap into tasty syrup. Volunteer educators visit 2nd-grade classes to teach a 4-week curriculum about trees and maple syrup. Educators also lead maple-themed workshops at the public libraries and other venues. Save the date: This year’s Boil Down Festival will be on March 12th!!
