Looking for a fun family outing? Come to Prescott Farm on Saturdays during the month of March and enjoy Maple Sugar Madness!
Laconia, NH – For over 15 years Prescott Farm has been offering their Maple Sugar Madness programs to school groups and the public during the month of March. On Saturdays, March 4-25 the public is invited to come and take part in this 1.5 hour program. Available program times include; 10:00am, 11:00am, 12:00pm, 1:00pm or 2:00pm. All that attend will get to experience an old-fashioned New England tradition – making maple syrup!
From tapping a tree to tasting delicious maple syrup, you will have hands-on participation in every step of the syrup making process. Our environmental educators will help you to build tree ID skills and learn the parts of a tree and their functions, use measuring tools to find an appropriate tree to tap, use historical and modern tree tapping tools, learn the history of maple sugaring including Native American legends, and discover the math and chemical/physical science in the boiling process. The program also involves a 20 minute walk to our Sugar House, please note that you will be hiking back up hill after the program. Please wear boots and dress appropriately for the weather. Snowshoes will be provided as needed.
Prescott Farm is a nonprofit organization dedicated to environmental education and preservation. We provide year-round environmental education programs for all ages and a place in the Lakes Region community that encourages curiosity, discovery, fun and connection to the natural world.
