Rich, sweet maple sap will be drip, drip, dripping into pails at the Nature Museum and educators will be hosting a month of events aimed at showing school groups and families how the savory liquid makes the transition from tree to syrup! Join educators as they prepare for the season with a special program which culminates with you tapping your very own maple tree! Participants will learn the origins and natural history of maple syrup, followed by a guided walk through the sugar bush to pick out and tap a tree using a spile. Next hang a bucket on the end of the tube to catch sap, which later will be collected and boiled down to its sugary essence for public programs. Includes a pint of local maple syrup to take home. Prepaid registration required. One tree per family. Trees are limited!  Walk-ins will not be admitted.
