Event Description:

We’ll learn all about the process of tapping maple trees for syrup.

If you’d like to share something you’ve found rather ingenious, or even just a good idea, please share it with us.
We will divide into groups. One group will do the maple syrup-making tour first while the other group learns about the incredible ingenuity that is being tapped into to solve big and little problems, especially regarding climate change. A separate kids activity will be provided during the learning portion to make sure it’s age-appropriate.
There’s no cost for this event!
