Maple Sugaring Tours
2023 Maple Sugaring Tour Schedule
Tours will run February 11- March 11
Freezing nights in the 20s and warm days in the 40s trigger the sugar maple sap run, which starts our sugaring season!
C’mon down and learn the science and history of “sugaring.” Around our campfires, visitors will learn Indigenous people and Colonist historical techniques for making maple sugar. Learn about tree identification, qualities of sap and syrup, how to tap, and more at our outdoor displays and tapped trees. If the weather’s just right, we’ll watch sap dripping into buckets and boiling in our sugar shack.
. . . And even though Mother Nature can’t guarantee the sap run (and boiling) on any given day, tours are still interesting and fun, and offer visitors a fascinating view of this enduring New England tradition.
