Maple Sugaring at Home: From Tap to Table

January 27, 2021 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

One event on February 24, 2021 at 4:30 pm

Ready to start tapping trees in your yard? This two-part course will guide you through the process so you can make your own maple syrup! Every year at Lorrimer Sanctuary we tap trees to make homemade maple syrup. With the proper tools and a large enough maple tree, you can tap trees at home too! In this two-part program, we will go over everything you need to know about tapping maple trees and processing maple syrup. Participants will leave each program with the exact knowledge and practice to duplicate the process at home. Materials are not included, but a list will be provided before the first program to set you up for success!

January 27th 4:30pm-5:30pm- Part 1: Maple Tree Basics and Tapping the Tree

February 24th 4:30pm-5:30pm- Part 2: Sap Collection, Boiling and Tasting

Bundle up! This class is entirely outdoors.

COST: $30 members, $35 non-members
