Maple Sugar Time Demonstration

February 26, 2023
11:00AM - 3:00PM

Friendship Botanic Gardens will host a free afternoon of winter wilderness discovery at the annual Maple Sugar Time Event.

Come walk through old-growth woodland trails before stopping by the maple sugaring station to learn how the early inhabitants of North America produced maple syrup.
Long-serving garden volunteer Jude Rakowski will demonstrate the processes of harvesting and boiling Red Maple sap to make a foodstuff that was crucial to the survival of the early settlers.
Please dress warm for the winter weather!
