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. How were they able to do so without access to metal tools or plastic tubing? Join IAIS Educator and Ecologist Susan Scherf for the first in a pair of sweet outdoor workshops, as she demonstrates the traditional techniques of collecting sap and boiling it down into syrup. Topics and activities will include: Native American stories about maple syrup as well as different technologies for collecting and boiling.
