Join Environmental Educators on one of their Public Maple Sugaring Days to learn about the history of pure maple syrup, how they make it and taste a sample of their pure maple syrup on pancakes.
Saturday, March 11th where you can take a 90-minute tour of the sugarbush focusing on the history of maple syrup from the Native Americans to the early settlers in this region. Learn how to “tap” a maple tree to obtain sap, and watch as they demonstrate how to cook the sap until it is sweet maple syrup. You’ll complete the tour at our pancake station where the finished product is served over freshly made pancakes. Preregistration is required by calling 570-629-3061. Participants may choose a time from 10am-2pm for their 90-minute tour.
