Tap into maple sugaring tradition

Join us for this family experience and follow the maple sugaring process from sap to syrup noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 27, or Sunday, March 7, at PPL’s Montour Environmental Preserve.

Programs begin on the hour (noon, 1, 2 and 3 p.m.) in our Environmental Education Center with a talk and film featuring the natural and cultural history of making maple sugar. Afterward, a short walk through Goose Woods takes you to the Sugar Shack to experience the sights, sounds and scents of maple sugaring. Families, Scouts, 4-H and other groups are welcome to attend either day. Plan to arrive on the hour at the Environmental Education Center auditorium to enjoy the entire sugaring program. Outdoor demonstrations end at 4 p.m. Maple products and a poster will be available for purchase. For your comfort, we suggest you dress for the weather and a short walk outdoors.

For more information, contact the preserve at 570-437-3131 or jdbeam@pplweb.com.

PPL operates the preserve, about four miles northeast of Washingtonville, in conjunction with its Montour power plant in Derry Township.
