What is sap? What does it do for trees? How did the Native Americans learn to turn it into sugar? What is a sugar camp? These questions and more will be answered as you hike along the Sugar Bush Trail learning all about the history of turning sap into delicious syrup. Groups of 8 or more can schedule a private tour of our sugar maple camp. The tour will end at our sugar camp where participants can see syrup as it is being made and get a free sample. There is no fee for this program. Tours need to be completed by 5pm.
Create family memories during this winter adventure! Maple sugaring excitement begins by hearing "drip, drip, drip" as the first droplets of sap go into your bucket. Bring your whole family to learn all about the history of maple sugaring. Along the way you will find out how to identify sugar maple trees in winter, take turns drilling a hole and tapping a spile. Then, your family will have a special bucket that can be checked throughout the season. Sap from the bucket will be cooked into syrup for the Pancakes in the Park event. Families who rent a bucket will receive a free breakfast for up to 4 people at the event.
