Witness ancient brilliance in each of the Hopewell earthworks

A memorable and enriching experience

Maple Syrup–Tap That

This program will include a brief discussion of Native, colonial, traditional and modern techniques of creating maple syrup, as well as a display of historic techniques showing how people tapped maple trees. Stations will be set up focusing on each of the historical approaches. Different tools will be displayed ranging from birch bark buckets to pipeline systems of the modern sugar bush. We will also compare methods as we boil down sap in both a cast iron kettle and a stainless steel evaporator.

Participants are encouraged to dress appropriately as the program will be held outdoors. This is ongoing throughout the afternoon, from Noon–4 p.m. Participants may drop in on this activity.

General site admission applies for Nonmembers. Regular site admission: $7/Adults, $6/Children (6-17) and Seniors (60+). Children under 5 are free.
