Come and learn the art of making maple syrup. This is a hands on program, where participants are able to take part in different steps of the process from tapping the trees, to collecting sap, and then boiling it down to syrup. We will also explore Native American methods used to create maple sugar. We will learn about wooden containers, early tapping methods, fire by friction and rock boiling sap.  View Flyer
