|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Sunday and Saturday, repeating until March 13, 2022

Maple sugaring is a tradition in the Northeast that began centuries ago with the Native Americans and colonists. People of all ages are invited to see this tradition brought to life. You will see how trees are tapped, view sap-collecting methods past and present, and observe the boiling process that produces delicious New Jersey maple syrup. This 60-minute program is conducted at the Environmental Education Center (EEC) Sugar Shack, a half-mile hike from the Center’s parking area. Please arrive at the EEC 20-30 minutes before the program start time and to allow enough time to hike to the Sugar Shack. Dress appropriately for outdoor weather conditions. Boots are recommended as the trails can be wet, muddy, and/or covered by snow. Pre-registration is required.
$6 per student/senior
