Mighty maple syrup, that amber aristocrat of all sweets, is a large part of what we call the ‘three M’ time of year – March, Maple, and Mud.
Join The Nature Place for our most popular public program (it’s so nice, we do it twice).
Saturday, March 2nd | 12pm - 1pm AND 2pm - 3pm
307 Hungry Hollow Road Chestnut Ridge, NY 10977
We’ll learn all about maples trees, discovering what it takes to turn sap into syrup. We’ll then go outside to tap a maple tree, taste the sap that drips out, see it boiling over a fire, and then, conclude our event with the sweet taste of thickened maple syrup over crushed ice, accompanied, of course, by a dill pickle. Participants in this program will take home spouts for tapping as well as clear instructions for making your own maple syrup at home, from your very own tree.
After maple sugaring, we will have camp tours on this day from 1 – 2pm and 3 – 4pm. You can take a tour, look at pictures, and learn all about the ins and outs of what it’s like to be a camper at The Nature Place.
