Tap into Maple at Prescott Farm Environmental Education Center
March 16, 2019
An event every week that begins at 12:00 am on Saturday, repeating until March 30, 2019
Join us every Saturday in March to experience an old-fashioned New England tradition — making maple syrup! From tapping a tree to tasting delicious maple syrup, you will participate hands-on in every step of the syrup making process. Our environmental educators will help you build tree ID skills, 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 involves a 20 minute walk to our Sugar House with an uphill hike back after the program. Please wear boots and dress appropriately for the weather. Snowshoes or traction cleats will be provided as needed—bring your own if you have them!
Saturdays, March 2-30; 10:00, 11:00, 12:00, 1:00, 2:00
$10 ($8 Members; FREE for Upgraded Members!)
