Maple Syrup DayDate: March 22, 2014
Time: 10:00 AM - 04:00 PM

Learn about the history of maple sugar making in North America as you help tap a maple tree and observe the boil-down process which converts maple sap into maple syrup. Of course, the day would not be complete without sampling this tasty Michigan product.
Children can participate in a variety of fun and educational hands-on activities during Maple Syrup Day at Hartwick Pines. Among their unique experiences, they will construct a paper version of a mokuk, a birchbark container used by native peoples to transport maple sugar.
Maple Syrup Day also includes:
- The video presentations Maple Sugar Farmer, Maple Sugaring and The Maple Sugaring Story.
- Maple recipes to take home.
- Genuine maple sugar candy and syrup for purchase.
