Spring is here! (well, almost). Join naturalists for a sweet sign that spring is on the way — Maple Sugaring Days! Learn how to tap a maple tree, and practice drilling and setting your own tap. Watch sap simmer over an open fire as it darkens and thickens to syrup. Come along on a guided hike to learn to distinguish maples from other trees. And best of all, sample pure, locally m​ade syrup. The event is free. Syrup will be available for purchase.
