Maple Tree Tapping Day 1/10/2021

This event is no longer on sale.

Sunday January 10

1:30 PM  –  4:30 PM

This program is SOLD OUT. Please contact to be added to the WAIT LIST for this program. We will contact you only if space becomes available.

Preregistration required.  Most appropriate for adults or interested children ages 8 and up with adult.

Program participants meet in the Outdoor Learning Center at our Rowe Woods location.

Help us tap the trees as we start the sugaring season. Head out into the sugarbush with a maple guide to learn the ins and outs of tree identification and tapping all while drilling holes, setting taps, and hanging sap buckets. We’ll have hot cocoa and a fire to warm up. This is a great experience but also serves as a how-to instructional class for those wishing to tap trees at home.

We look forward to having you join us for maple tapping. Whether your interest is DIY or just enjoying a new experience, please know we have safety in mind. We will be operating in small groups, sanitizing tools between users, and we will be conducting temperature checks on all trail leaders and participants upon arrival per Cincinnati Nature Center COVID protocols. 

Members $7; nonmembers $12 (includes daily admission).
