This program includes an outdoor maple sugaring tour and an inside lab where students measure the density of sap samples to determine which maple species has the highest sugar yield, and learn the density requirements for syrup. Enjoy the woods as you learn how trees function as sugar factories, compare the taste of sap and syrup, and observe the change in tool technology since Native American times!
Significant savings are offered when you select a second program to create a full-day of hands-on learning at Moose Hill. This program combines well with Adaptations and the Food Web, or Tracks & Traces. Because of our large trail system and full-day option, we can serve up to 130 students for many programs. We provide a ratio of one Moose Hill teacher-naturalist to 12 to 14 students.
