Does your family know where the maple syrup that tops their pancakes comes from? Sugar Grove Nature Center is offering homeschooling families an up-close look at maple syrup production. Their Maple Sirup Experience programs are a popular annual tradition. By participating in one of these events, your students will receive an understanding of how maple syrup goes from tree to table.
Maple Sirup Experience is a day filled with demonstrations and hands-on experiences. Each student will have an opportunity to tap a tree. Please dress for the weather, as part of the program will be held outdoors. Participants will each be given a souvenir bottle of maple syrup to take home.
Two sessions of Maple Sirup Experience will be offered for homeschoolers. Programs will be held from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. on Tuesday, March 5 and Wednesday, March 6.
The cost is $7 for children and $2 for adults. Children under age three are free. Registration forms and fees must be received by Friday, Feb. 15.
