Maple Sugar Time at Friendship Botanic Gardens

On Sunday, February 24th from noon to 3pm, Friendship Botanic Gardens will host a free afternoon of winter wilderness discovery at the annual Maple Sugar Time Event. Visitors can take a self-guided nature walk through old-growth woodland trails before stopping by the maple sugaring station to learn how the early inhabitants of North America produced maple syrup.

“The Indians taught the settlers how to do this,” Rakowski said. “By spring, their supplies were almost gone and they would have almost nothing to eat except the sugar.”

Jude is a dedicated garden steward who gathers and chops wood the entire year to fuel the fires used to boil the maple sap. It takes 40 gallons of sap to make just one gallon of syrup.
