Kids learning to tap maple trees

Sap, Syrup, and Sugar (on-site)

March 6, 7, 8, 13, 14, 15, & 20, 2024 

Grades 2-8 
Guided through a series of 6 stations at the Nature Center only, groups will explore the history of maple sugaring. Students will try their hand at tapping a tree, taste sugar on snow, watch sap boil into syrup in our sugarhouse, take a walk on the maple history trail, and talk with historic interpreters to learn how traditions of making maple syrup have changed over the years.
Register for an optional maple pancake meal to cap off your experience! (If your school qualifies for grant funding through the DMJ grant, the pancake meal will be covered.)
Space is limited to 250 students per day, with a limit of 1 adult per 10 students (adults include both school staff and chaperones).
