About the Club

This virtual SPIN club is for youth ages 9-16 and will end in a culminating in-person workshop at a Maine Maple Sugar House. We will learn about tree ages and characteristics, practice tree identification, explore the versatility of trees, careers involved with forests, and learn about tapping maple trees for syrup. Youth will be receiving kits in the mail for accompanying hands-on activities including tree ring counting, tree cookie ornaments, tree identification books, maple candies, and maple syrup thickness and taste samples.

REGISTER HERE!
