It’s the time of year when buckets decorate the sugar maples
throughout Funks Grove. Have you ever tasted ‘sweet water’ dripping
from a spile? Here’s your chance! Join us for the Funks Grove Maple
Sirup Experience at Sugar Grove Nature Center on Saturday, March
Gather around the fire at the sirup camp to learn how the Native
Americans and early settlers collected and prepared sap. Visit the
sugar shack where the smell of maple sirup hangs in the air. Journey
into the sugarbush to tap a tree. Stop inside the Nature Center to
sample a variety of sweet treats made with maple sirup including
candy, cookies, veggies, fudge, and more!
Tours last approximately 2-1/2 hours and begin promptly at 9:30
a.m., Noon, and 2:30 p.m. Tour size is limited and advanced
registration is required. Registration Deadline is February 26,
2016. Dress for the weather, as you will be outside for a major
portion of the program.
This program is suitable for adults, children, and other interested
groups. A fee per person is charged with discounts for members.
Fees are non-refundable unless the program is canceled.
