Start
Friday, February 23 10:30 am
End
Friday, February 23 12:00 pm

Free

Join volunteer naturalist Pam Newitt to learn all about the original method for making maple syrup, from choosing the trees to boiling the sap. After a short introduction, we will head into the forest to find sugar maple trees (Acer saccharum) and discover how maple syrup is made. A taste of real maple syrup and a take-home craft will wrap up a fun winter adventure. This program is for children ages 3 to 6 with an accompanying adult.

Pam Newitt has a B.S. in wildlife conservation from the University of Maryland, has been a professional interpretive naturalist since 1989 and is a long-time active presence at the Preserve. She loves walking woodland trails, looking up for birds and down at wildflowers.
