Maple Sugaring Demonstrations @ Great Swamp Outdoor Education Center
January 18 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm
An event every day that begins at 1:00 pm, repeating until January 19, 2020
The trees are tapped and the firewood is chopped – it’s maple sugaring season at the Great Swamp Outdoor Education Center in Chatham Township! Join fascinating, hour long, maple sugaring demonstrations this January, February, and March at 1 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. on the following dates: January 18, 19, 25, 26, February 1, 2, 8, 9, 15, 16, 22, 23, 29, March 1, 7 & 8.
Experience the entire process from tree to pancake-topping treat.
Watch as staff identifies and taps maple trees and collects the flowing sap, and witness syrup making over a wood-fired evaporator. Best of all, taste-test the Great Swamp’s own homemade syrup.
Learn to appreciate the quality differences, and the process that is required to make this tasty treat. Demonstrations are fascinating and fun for all ages!
Admission is $4 per person. No registration is required, but it is first come, first served seating. All demonstrations are held rain or shine. For more information and directions to the Great Swamp Outdoor Education Center, visit morrisparks.net or call 973.635.6629.
