Maple Sugaring Intensive at Prescott Farm
February 22, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Have you always been interested in making maple syrup but don’t know where to start or lack the trees or time for your own sugaring operation? In this more in depth program you will learn the basics – everything from tree ID to the correct consistency of the finished maple syrup – starting in the classroom and then outside as we prepare our sugarhouse and trees for the upcoming sugaring season. Take the opportunity to put your knowledge into practice as a volunteer during one or more of our public education programs in March. On this day (or days!) you’ll keep the fire going and monitor sap boiling, carry sap to the sugar house, and assist our educators with other aspects of the public program.
Participants must be 18+ and in good physical condition (able to use snowshoes, hike uphill and lift buckets of sap).
Cost: $25 ($15 for Members)
Recommended Ages: Adults
