Maple Syrup Family Event

March 6 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Maple syrup season has arrived! Come to Great Hollow and learn all about making maple syrup right in your backyard. No fancy evaporator systems here; just a hot open fire to gather around for good conversation and to watch the process of boiling sap into syrup, or as the old-timers call it, “liquid gold.” We’ll learn how to identify and tap maple trees, hang buckets, and collect sap, and then finally, how to boil it down. Best of all, we’ll have the opportunity to taste the product of our hard work – pure 100% backyard style maple syrup! And if there’s enough, we will also have a limited number of small maple syrup bottles for you to fill and take home.

Please dress warmly and meet in the visitor’s parking area by the main entrance. Please sign up in advance by emailing John at jfoley@greathollow.org. $10 for non-members, $5 for members.
