Maple Tree Tapping at HHNM | Kids Out and About Hudson Valley

Maple Tree Tapping at HHNM

*The event has already taken place on this date: Sun, 02/16/2020
Rich, sweet maple sap will be drip, drip, dripping into pails at the Nature Museum and educators will be hosting a month of events aimed at showing school groups and families how the savory liquid makes the transition from tree to syrup! Join our educators as they prepare for the season with a special program which culminates with you tapping your very own maple tree! Participants will learn the origins and natural history of maple syrup, followed by a guided walk through the sugar bush to pick out and tap a tree using a spile. Next we’ll hang a bucket on the end of the tube to catch sap, which later will be collected and boiled down to its sugary essence for public programs. Includes a pint of local maple syrup to take home.

One tree per family. Trees are limited!
