Maple Sugaring at the Great Swamp

Maple syrup is winter's sugary treasure, and it's not just found in Vermont. The sap is flowing and the sugaring season is underway at the Great Swamp Outdoor Education Center. Come experience all the sweet sights and smells at one of the Maple Sugaring Demos. Discover the process from start to finish by identifying and tapping maple trees, collecting sap, and seeing syrup made over a wood-fired evaporator. Think you can identify the differences between maple syrups? Take a taste test of three distinct maple syrups, a store bought syrup made from corn syrup, a farm produced syrup made from sugar maple trees, and the syrup made from the red maple trees at the Great Swamp OEC.
