Maple Sugaring Weekends at Moose Hill

March 17, 18, & 25, 2018

11:00 am-3:00 pm

Colonial farmers at Moose Hill Wildlife Sanctuary's Maple Sugaring Weekends

Journey back in time to enjoy the time honored tradition of turning sap to syrup at Moose Hill's Maple Sugaring Weekends.

  • 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 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 at the Nature Center. The sugaring fun continues at our children’s craft tables. And don't forget to try your luck and enter our maple basket drawing! Winners will be selected and notified in early April.

This is also a great opportunity for scout, school, and community groups! Maple sugaring programs are available for groups Monday through Friday. To schedule, or for more information, call 781-784-5691.
