Maple Sugaring Tour
Thursday, March 21, 4:30-6 pm

Spring is in the air and our trees are waking up. Buds begin to grow, leaves begin to unfurl, and nutrient rich sap starts to flow once more inside our local trees. This bidirectional flow of sap from roots to shoots is a sign of spring returning. It is also a sign that maple sugaring, the collection of gallons of sap from trees to boil down into maple syrup, is set to start. The Sugar Maple (Acer saccharum) has provided residents of North America with maple syrup for centuries. Join in on this hike to learn more about the incredible Sugar Maple, see sap collection in real time, and find out how we can all help our sugar maples and beyond to make sure we have maple syrup available for generations to come. Dress for the weather as this program will be entirely outdoors!
