Tap into history of maple sugaring

Take a look at maple sugaring from the times of Native Americans until now and the importance it has had throughout history during this program from 1:30-3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 20, at PPL’s Martins Creek Environmental Preserve.

Join us for this informative program on maple sugaring that will teach you how to identify a sugar maple tree without its leaves. Then we will follow the steps in sugaring from the tree to the table.

This free program will meet at the Lower Mount Bethel Welcome Center. For directions, please visit www.pplpreserves.com, click on “Martins Creek” then select “Directions.”

The Martins Creek Environmental Preserve, in conjunction with PPL’s Martins Creek and Lower Mount Bethel Energy power plants, offers 215 acres of woodlands and meadows for hiking and exploring and boasts five miles of trails with views of the middle Delaware River, which has been designated by Congress as a Wild and Scenic River.
