[February 09, 2013]
McLEAN -- Attention, Boy and Girl Scout
leaders! Your troop is invited to Sugar Grove Nature Center to join
the maple sirup fun. At a program offered Feb. 23, Scouts will learn
how sap from the maple tree becomes sirup (traditional spelling used
at Funks Grove), and take part in the process from tree tapping to
tasting. There is a choice of two sessions: 9:30 a.m.-noon or 1-3:30
When registering, be sure to gather participant numbers for your
entire troop so that no one is left out of this experience. Note: In
order to accommodate as many Scouts as possible, the nature center
asks that the number of adults in attendance be no more than one
adult per five Scouts, and no siblings, please. For those who would
like to attend as a family, consider the Maple Sirup Experience
Tours on March 2.
The fee is $7 per Scout and $2 for leaders.
Registration and prepayment are required. Forms are available at
www.sugargrovenaturecenter.org/maplesirup.html and by
firstname.lastname@example.org or 309-874-2174.
