Maple Sugaring & Bonfire Social for adults

March 3 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

A special Maple Sugaring program and bonfire just for adults!

Join us for a fun afternoon just for adults! First we’ll learn about the process, history and ecology of maple sap and syrup. We will take a short hike to learn about winter tree ID, sap ecology, and tree biology, and discuss the history of tree tapping and some of the many things that sap is used for. We’ll visit our tapped trees where we’ll learn how to tap, collect, and taste the sap, then see how the evaporator works. Then we will have a blind syrup taste test in the covered pavilion (with heaters)!

We will end the program with a cozy bonfire and time to chat over hot chocolate.

  • Adults only (ages 18 and up)
  • Dress appropriately as the program will be held outdoors
  • Follow the driveway and park near the main brick building
