News & Upcoming Events

Tap into Maple all month long!

Learn Something Sweet in March with “Tap Into Maple”

Saturdays, March 2-30; 10:00, 11:00, 12:00, 1:00, 2:00
$10 ($8 Members; FREE for Upgraded Members!)

Join us every Saturday in March to experience an old-fashioned New England tradition — making maple syrup! From tapping a tree to tasting delicious maple syrup, you will participate hands-on in every step of the syrup making process. Our environmental educators will help you build tree ID skills, learn the parts of a tree and their functions, use measuring tools to find an appropriate tree to tap, use historical and modern tree tapping tools, learn the history of maple sugaring including Native American legends, and discover the math and chemical/physical science in the boiling process.

The program involves a 20 minute walk to our Sugar House with an uphill hike back after the program. Please wear boots and dress appropriately for the weather. Snowshoes or traction cleats will be provided as needed—bring your own if you have them!

What they say about us

The traditional farm skills and wildlife habitat lessons taught and demonstrated in a natural environment by the staff nurtures and stimulates involvement by the children beyond anything they might experience elsewhere. It’s just rewarding to be involved, though even in such a small way, when you can see the results first hand.

The past few years as volunteers at Prescott Farm, Janice and I have been enriched with the opportunity to introduce youngsters to a dairy goat while experiencing the wonder and curiosity of the children as many meet face to face with their first farm animal.

We’ve enjoyed helping during both Harvest and Winter public events almost as much as reveling in the excitement as our grandchildren share what they’ve learned and enjoyed most at the end of each day at ‘camp’ during the drive home.
