Each year our Maple Sugar bush outside Marshall’s Creek, PA comes alive with the smell of boiling maple syrup, burning wood fires, and the sound of dripping maple sap as we experience another season of maple sugaring. Our Sugarbush, an area in the forest where maple trees are tapped to collect sap, will provide visitors with an opportunity to learn about the process and history of making maple syrup first-hand including hands-on instruction on tapping a tree.
The season runs from mid-February to the end of March and programs are provided for groups, scouts, and the general public. We also provide the opportunity to take part in our maple tree sponsor program. This sponsorship not only supports the EE Center Maple sugaring programs it also give a pint of pure Meesing Maple syrup to each tree sponsor.
Our annual Public Maple sugaring Pancake Day is held the first Sat. of March. Visitors will tour the sugarbush and also be treated to fresh pancakes with some of our own real maple syrup.
The program is held on the Delaware State Forest’s Meesing Outdoor Site Sugarbush on Creek Road approximately 5.5 miles north of Marshalls Creek.
