Freezing nights in the 20s and warm days in the 40s trigger the sugar maple sap run, which starts our sugaring season!
C’mon down and learn the science and history of “sugaring.” Around our campfires, visitors will learn Indigenous people and Colonist historical techniques for making maple sugar. Learn about tree identification, qualities of sap and syrup, how to tap, and more at our outdoor displays and tapped trees. If the weather’s just right, we’ll watch sap dripping into buckets and boiling in our sugar shack.
Even though Mother Nature can’t guarantee the sap run (and boiling) on any given day, tours are still interesting and fun, and offer visitors a fascinating view of this enduring New England tradition.
Children and adults are $10 each. Non-walking infants are free.
Please note that you must register and pay for each guest, so you must register from the website browser and not the app. We will do our best to accommodate last-minute additions, but we may be constrained by tour size.
