SLU Sustainability Farm Maple Sugaring Open House

Event date and time
March 15, 2018 - 3:30 PM to 4:30 PM

Join us for an afternoon touring the maple sugaring operation at the St. Lawrence Sustainability Site! We'llĀ spend some time helpingĀ sap, chatting about maple sugaring traditions, and stop by the farmhouse for hot cocoa. Then, we'll walk next door to Cornell Cooperative Extension's sugar shack, where you'll get to see (and taste!) maple sap being boiled down into the syrup we know and love. At the event, Nature Up North will share information about how you can help collect data this spring on the impact of climate change on sugar maple trees in the North Country!

A campus shuttle will be leaving from the SLU Bookstore at 3:15 pm, and returning by 5:00 pm. Please rsvp to info@natureupnorth.org to reserve space in the shuttle. See you there!
