Maple Sugaring Demo

Maple Sugaring Demo

Saturday, March 21, 2020

10:00 am – 2:00 pm

Stoney Hollow Sugarbush will show visitors how to identify maple trees, a little history of syrup making, and how technology has changed the way we gather sap over the centuries. Visitors will learn how to tap a tree and how the sap is boiled down to make fresh, warm maple syrup. Childrens crafts, up-close nature, and other activities will be available inside the nature center during the event. Kids of all ages can also enjoy sugar on snow, a sweet treat for all to taste.  Maple syrup will also be available for purchase.

This is a great, family outdoor winter experience. Small groups or clubs are welcome to attend.

Suggested donation: $5 per adult or $10 a family. Your donation supports future programs like this one and helps the nature center provide year-round interpretation and envrionmental programs to the local community and its many visitors.
