Maple Syrup Workshop, Part 2: The History of a Sweet Tradition

February 27 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

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 this pair of outdoor workshops focusing on the history of this sweet tradition, as well as techniques for making your own.

In this workshop, participants will observe a demonstration of 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 sap.

Sign up for a time slot with your family or friends. Space per time slot is limited.  Questions? Please call (860) 868-0518 or email [email protected] Price of Participation: $15 for Adults, $13 for Seniors, $11 for children and $5 for Members.
