Discover the science and history of maple sugaring! Identifying a tree is harder once the leaves are off, but scouts will find out what to look for as we explore our nine-acre sugar bush in search of maple trees to tap. After tapping a tree, we will learn how maple sugaring has changed over time as we visit Native American and pioneer sugaring camps, and then stop by the Sugar Shack to see syrup made on a small-scale modern evaporator.
Scouts will see, touch, and smell as they achieve a higher level of understanding and respect toward the environment and the contributions of Native American people. Programs begin every half hour, last approximately one hour, and are entirely outdoors. Participants will walk approximately a quarter of a mile over uneven ground. Face coverings are required. For all ages, pre-registration required.
