Overview:

Hey homeschool families! We invite you to discover how unique maple sugaring is to the region and why. This program includes tapping a maple tree, watching the process of turning sap into syrup, and a tour of the Native American sugaring camp. Students will achieve a higher leveling of understanding and respect toward the environment and the contributions of Native American Peoples. Inside the classroom become a living maple – acting out the functions of tree parts to discover why maples give us sweet sap in the spring. Tours begin every hour, last approximately one hour, and are entirely outdoors. Dress for the weather.

Time: 9 – 12 p.m.

Cost: $5 adults; $3 child

Location: Kensington Farm Center – Map Me
