Maple sugaring is the tradition of making maple syrup from sap gathered from maple trees in late winter/early spring. Many animals (and people) are benefited by using the sap of the maple trees. Plan to visit our sugar bush at Greenacres as you experience with your senses how maple sap is turned into syrup. (January 29 – February 23, 2024)
