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. As a precursor to our annual Maple Sugar Festival on March 11th, join the IAIS Educator and Ecologist Susan Scherf for a sweet workshop in which participants will learn about how maple syrup production has changed over time, 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. Tap into a sweet tradition by helping to make traditional sumac spiles. Please dress appropriately for the weather.
