Learn Something Sweet in March with “Tap Into Maple”
$10 (FREE for Members)
Please note: In order to limit contact in large groups, our “Tap into Maple” sessions will be strictly capped at 10 participants. Pre-registration is highly recommended.
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!

90 minute programs begin at 10:00; 11:00; 12:00; 1:00; and 2:00.
