Event Details

Looking for a sweet end to the winter months? As the days get warmer, but the nights remain cold, it’s the right condition for maple sugaring! Join IAIS staff for an event celebrating the gift of Maple Sugar. Throughout the day, IAIS Museum Educator and Ecologist Susan Scherf will demonstrate various traditional techniques of collecting sap and boiling it down into syrup and sugar. For an enriching experience, listen to some Traditional Native American stories and participate in family-friendly educational activities.

Hungry? Enjoy freshly made pancakes topped with local maple syrup, coffee and orange juice while learning about the gifts of the maple trees for Native and Non-Native communities.

Participants should dress appropriately for the weather as portions of this event are held outdoors. Participants can also participate in a raffle of select items from our gift shop.

Pre-registration is requested. Please Note: Tickets purchased at the door will be $5 more than online tickets.
