Learn the science of maple trees... Hear the history of maple sugaring... See maple syrup being made... Taste syrup (from local trees) on pancakes!
This program is held around the first Saturday of March each year. Each tour lasts about 90 minutes. There is no need to preregister as tours will be ongoing. The day will feature a tour of the Sugarbush including stops to learn about Native American and early pioneer methods of making maple syrup, our evaporator process and methods of identifying and tapping a maple tree. After the tour, everyone will get a chance to taste some of our syrup on freshly made pancakes!
Cost: $6/adult and $4/children under 12; all members of the EE Center and all tree sponsors attend free of charge. Please note only cash and check are accepted. Please dress to be outside and walking on potentially icy/snow covered trails.
