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 pancakes topped with real maple syrup, as well as coffee and orange juice, while learning about the importance of the maple sugar season to local Native American cultures.
