Join experienced sugarmakers for demonstrations and discussion on all aspects of making maple syrup, the sweetest gift of nature, in your own backyard!

In the morning, learn about identifying and tapping trees, collecting and boiling sap, and more. After a short break, join us at Dunn Family Maple to look at their tubing systems and learn how you can set up this efficient sap collection method.
