Tap into Sweetness: Maple Syrup Tour

posted Feb 5, 2012, 4:06 PM by Thomas Eddy   [ updated Feb 6, 2012, 9:09 AM ]
NOTE:  Date may change!  The production of maple syrup is dependent on the weather. Once the time is right for maximum sap flow, reserved participants will be contacted by phone or email with the date of the tour.

As temperatures begin to warm the maple sap starts flowing! Experience the process of making maple syrup in the woods led by Tanya and Randy Roeper. This annual process includes tapping sugar maple trees for sap collection, then boiling the sap into syrup right in the middle of the woods. Taste test dark and light maple syrups and other maple treats.

Those attending should wear boots suited for mud or snow and crossing a small stream. Please dress according to the weather. Although a large tent will offer some protection from the damp, cool spring weather the event is entirely outdoors.

Two tours with a limit of 20 people each are available. Reservations are required and spaces fill quickly! This event is free and open to the public. Please contact the GLA to reserve your spot. Contact the GLA office at 920.294.6480 or email
