[January 11, 2013]  McLEAN -- Have you ever thought about tapping that maple tree in your yard? Learn how with instructor Jim Wilson, who has been transforming sap from his backyard into sirup (the traditional spelling used at Funks Grove) for years. A Jan. 19 program at Sugar Grove Nature Center will give you the basics and direct you to the resources needed to turn your kitchen or garage into a sugar shack.

The program runs from 10:30 a.m. to noon.

Registration is required. The fee is $5 for members and $8 for nonmembers. For more information or to register, phone 309-874-2174 or email

Sugar Grove Nature Center is located in historic Funks Grove, just south of Bloomington-Normal, off Old Route 66. For a map and directions to the nature center, membership and program information, visit
