Mount Hope Maple Madness Sugaring Festival
Sugaring, the art of making maple syrup, has been practiced for thousands of years. The tradition began in the Northeast United States centuries ago with the Native Americans and colonists. People of all ages are invited to see this tradition brought to life by Strawberry Hill Nature Preserve naturalists. You will learn how trees are tapped, view sap-collecting methods past and present, and see the boiling process that produces delicious maple syrup.
This 90-minute tour program is conducted throughout the last few weeks of February and into early March (weather permitting). Public demonstrations are available during Mount Hope Maple Madness, the last Saturday in February and the first Saturday in March. Organized groups (such as schools, scout groups, etc.) may schedule private demonstrations on the Preserve.
