Presented by: Montour Preserve Staff
Maple sugaring is a truly North American tradition and has been a long tradition at Montour Preserve. Join us to learn some history of sugaring and follow the process from sap to syrup in this interesting family experience. Programs begin in our Environmental Education Center on the hour (noon, 1, 2 and 3 p.m.) with a talk and film featuring the natural and cultural history of making maple sugar. Afterward, a short walk through Goose Woods takes you to the Sugar Shack to experience the sights, sounds and scents of maple sugaring. Scouts, 4-H and other groups are welcome to attend either day. Outdoor demonstrations end at 4 p.m. Maple products will be available for purchase at the Sugar Shack. For your comfort, we suggest you dress for the weather and time outdoors.
