Learn How to Make Maple Syrup at the Nature Center

The Burgess-Shadbush Nature Center is hosting their annual Maple Syrup Program in 4 separate sessions on Saturday, April 9 at 11:00am, Noon, 1:30pm, and 2:30pm.

This hands-on educational program will teach you and your family about the natural maple-making process. You will learn how the sugar “gets into” the tree, how to recognize a maple tree, and about the tapping process; there will also be an maplesyrup02opportunity to use an old fashioned brace and bit, but, out of respect to the local nature, the exercise will not be done using a real tree.

At the end of the program, participants will gather around a fire to experience the “boiling down” process which makes the syrup. Then, visitors will be served a bowl of ice cream with a warm maple syrup topping.

Pre-registration is required for this event and must be done in person. The cost is $3 per person age 4 and up.  Due to the popularity of this event, early registration and payment is recommended!
