Maple Sugaring Demonstration at Schiff Nature Center

The public is welcome to come to Schiff to experience a hands-on demonstration of maple sugar production with members of Schiff’s educational staff and Board. The tradition of maple sugaring began centuries ago with the Native Americans and early settlers and continues today as participants learn to identify, tap, and process the sap of Maple trees.

The educational presentation will explain the history of maple sugaring, the seasonal life cycle of the sugar maple tree, and how 100% real maple syrup is made starting with identifying a maple tree through tapping the tree. Following the educational program, enthusiasts can view the wood-fired evaporator at work and then partake in sampling the final product. The best part is tasting fresh syrup made from our own Schiff maple trees. The day includes a maple baked goods sale so bring some cash so you can buy some treats in support of Schiff and enjoy them at home!

An optional two-mile field walk to the working maple grove will be offered to see the tapping and collection operation. Please arrive at the Nature Center 15 minutes before the start time and dress appropriately for the weather conditions. Boots are recommended as the trails can be wet, muddy, and/or covered by snow.
