maple sugaringI know the weather is freezing and it sure doesn’t look like spring.  Still in 2 weeks the maple trees will be ready for the Tenafly Nature Center’s maple sugaring event.  For me that’s really the start of spring activities.

On Sunday, March 1st, at 12:30 pm the program will begin.  You’ll learn about the history of making maple syrup and how it’s changed over the years using advanced methods and technology.  You’ll also learn about maple trees and you’ll actually go outside to a maple tree that’s already been tapped.

After gathering the sap and taking it inside, the sap will be boiled down to create delicious, warm maple syrup to be enjoyed by all.  It’s not only an educational event but also a lot of fun too.  Better dress warm because you will be outdoors for a while and Bergen County has been having quite a cold winter this year.  Whether young or old, this is a great way to spend some of your Sunday afternoon.   maple sugaring
