Girl Scouts: Trees in Winter ID & Maple Sugaring

February 22 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Discover the science and history of maple sugaring! Identifying a tree is harder once the leaves are off, but scouts will find out what to look for as we explore our 9-acre sugar bush in search of maple trees to tap. After tapping a tree, we will explore how maple sugaring has changed over time as we visit Native American and pioneer sugaring camps, and then stop by the Sugar Shack to see syrup made on a small-scale modern evaporator. The scouts will see, touch, and taste as they achieve a higher level of understanding and respect toward the environment and the contributions of Native American people. Programs begin every hour, last approximately one hour, and are entirely outdoors. For more information or if you have questions, please contact Outdoor Education at outdooreducation@gssem.org.
