03/05/22 - Maple Sugaring Demonstration for Scout Troops (I)
Scouting Troops are welcome to sign up for one of two time slots for an OUTDOOR hands-on demonstration of maple sugar production with members of Schiff's educational staff and Board. The tradition of maple sugaring began centuries ago with the Native Americans and early settlers and continues today as homeowners learn to identify, tap, and process the sap of Maple trees. Troops may join usat the Nature Center for this 1 1/2 hour program at 9:30 am or 11: 00 am. The educational presentation will be conducted in the Native Garden and explain the history of maple sugaring, the seasonal life cycle of the sugar maple tree, and how 100% real maple syrup is made starting with identifying a maple tree through tapping the tree. Following the educational program, enthusiasts can view the wood-fired evaporator at work and then move on to sampling the final product. Of course the best part is tasting fresh syrup and tasty treats made from our own Schiff maple syrup. An optional two mile field walk to the working maple grove will be offered to see the tapping and collection operation. Please arrive at the Nature Center 15 minutes before the start time and dress appropriately for the weather conditions. Boots are recommended as the trails can be wet, muddy, and/or covered by snow. This program is $80 per Troop of up to 15 children. No fee for chaperones/adults. Please register and pay in advance to secure your time slot. Guests are asked to have masks in hand for when social distancing is impossible. Seating is first come, first served. This program will be held rain or shine.
