Maple sugaring time, a New England tradition is here! Each year Flanders taps and collects sap from dozens of trees both here at the nature center and around Woodbury and invite anyone with an interest in maple sugaring with us this year to attend a volunteer information meeting on Thursday evening January 15th at 7 PM at The Flanders Studio There will be an overview of the 2015 season and details on many interesting volunteer opportunities. Refreshments will be served.
Tree tapping day, weather permitting, is scheduled for Saturday, January 31. No experience is needed and all ages and families are welcome to come to help out. For the purposes of coordination we are asking that this year those coming that day preregister so that we know that you plan on being a part of tapping the trees. Tree tappper volunteers will meet at the Flanders Sugar House at 9:30 AM. These events are free and open to the public.
To preregister for maple sugaring tasks please call 203-263-3711 Ext. 10.
