As the days get warmer, but the nights remain cold, it’s the right condition for maple sugaring! Native Americans were the first people to use the gifts of the maple tree to produce maple syrup and sugar. Join IAIS Educator and Ecologist Susan Scherf for the first in a pair of sweet outdoor workshops on making maple syrup. In this workshop, participants will learn about how maple syrup production is done in modern times, and how they can get started on their own. Topics and activities will include tree identification, different techniques for collecting and boiling sap, how to prepare for tree tapping season, and the impacts of climate change on maple syrup production.

Sign up for a time slot with your family or friends. Registration per time slot is limited. Please reserve a space through Eventbrite.
