Maple Sugaring Festival at Moose Hill March 10, 16 & 17
Journey back in time to enjoy the time honored tradition of turning sap to syrup at Mass Audubon's Moose Hill "Maple Sugar Festival". Join us for a special 90-minute outdoor, guided tour on a wooded trail to discover the history of maple sugaring. Visit the Native American and colonial site while meeting costumed characters from the past making maple syrup and reenacting other daily chores. Your tour will include a visit to our “sugar shack” where we turn sap into authentic maple syrup. All will get a delicious to taste!
Bring your winter appetite to savor "maple" delectables, such as hot pancakes with maple syrup, "sap" dogs on buns and maple sugar popcorn served back at the Nature Center. The sugaring fun continues after your tour at our children's craft tables.
When: March 10th, 16th & 17th with guided walking tours leaving every fifteen minutes from 11:00 to 3:00 pm.
Cost: $7 in advance or $8 on the day of the event. Children under the age of three may attend for free.
