Homeschool Maple Sugaring 10 AM

This event is no longer on sale.

Wednesday February 1

10:00 AM  –  11:15 AM

Preregistration is required. Recommended for 5 years and up with a caregiver. Adult chaperones/parents must register and should attend with their child. Older and younger siblings may attend if they are registered and paid. This program is designed for homeschoolers/virtual learners. (2 years and under are free.)

Join a naturalist for this winter adventure to find some of our native maple trees and learn about how the process of photosynthesis is involved with the production of maple syrup, which we call “liquid sunshine.”  Help with sugaring work and sample warm maple syrup right off the evaporator.  

What to wear/bring: Please dress for the weather as this program will take place outside and will include some off-trail hiking. Bring a water bottle.

Students participants should meet at the Outdoor Learning Center at our Rowe Woods location with a caregiver/designated adult. Look for the “Sap Hikes Start Here” sign. Dress for the weather; this program takes place completely outdoors.

Members $7; nonmembers $13 (includes daily admission). Participation is limited.
