Maple Madness Interpretive Tours – March 16

March 16 @ 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM

Maple Madness Interpretive Tours — Dahlem’s maple sugaring operation is small but an ideal site to demonstrate the science of collecting maple tree sap and making our favorite tasty maple syrup topping.

Sign up for an interpretive guided 1 1/4 hour tour at 10:00 am or 12:00 pm to learn about the history of sugaring, and learn through hands-on STEM activities; how to identify maple trees, drilling & tapping, the tree’s many jobs, and finally, see the sap being boiled down on the wood stove at our historic sugar shack, and where everyone gets to taste the sweet golden nectar of the sugar maple.
