Home School (Age 9-14): Maple Syruping

March 21, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

| $10/child (members save 10%)

Join us for a seasonal favorite!  Learn basic tree identification, try tools used by pioneers to “tap a tree,” taste the sap from maples and cook it down to syrup. Discover the science of sap flow in the tree and the boiling process. Through stories and historic artifacts, we will teach the history of maple syrup making from past to the present—and taste the final product!
9-14 year olds will learn tree ID, syrup math and how climate impacts maple syruping. 

For all sessions, registration deadline is 48 hours prior to the class. This is done to allow for ALNC to plan for small group sizes and staffing needs. Please call (608)-216-9370 to inquire about space if trying to register within the 48 hours prior to a program.
