Cranberry Lake Park - History of Maple Sugaring

Coming from a time before written history is the story of maple sugar and its importance to the people living within the Americas. This waffle-topping delicacy has a story to tell from legend all the way to sugar houses where gallons of sap are boiled throughout the sugaring season. Join us beneath the snowy canopy of Cranberry Lake's own monster maples to learn a little about how this treat was first discovered, the advancements in the technology that has allowed us to harvest and produce enough for the world, and the science behind how this sticky confectionary is even possible, Participants will be given their own tap kits to take home to make their own maple syrup at home. All who participate must register!
