Kick off maple sugaring season with this fun behind-the-scenes program. Help the senior educators ID the perfect trees, drill the holes, set the spiles, and hang the buckets to prepare for this annual winter tradition. Afterwards you will forage for ingredients and make tea, and talk about the power and benefits of our local evergreens.
This is a special one-time opportunity to join the educators as they set up for the maple sugaring programs and help make evergreen needle tea.
The New Weis Center also offers a traditional maple sugaring program which includes a short winter tree walk, evaporator, and syrup tasting.
Today's program is open to participates age 5 to adult. Dress appropriately as the program will be held outdoors.
The cost is $10 per person. Register in advance.
