Sappy Days

Those buckets hanging on trees can mean only one thing:

Sap buckets adorn maple trees at Montour Preserve

 it’s maple sugaring time. Join us at PPL’s Montour Preserve on Sunday, March 4 as we take you from sunshine to syrup at our second and final maple sugaring open house of the season. Programs begin indoors at noon, 1, 2 and 3 p.m.

Outdoor demonstrations continue until 4 p.m. This is a fun program for the entire family, so join us for some sappy days.

Montour Preserve’s Second Sugaring Open House

Sunday, March 6 might bring dripping skies, but the sap should be dripping also with the advent of warmer weather. Bring your umbrella and waterproof shoes to see demonstrations on turning maple sap into sweet maple at PPL’s Montour Preserve Sunday afternoon. Indoor sessions begin at noon, 1, 2 and 3 p.m. on folklore and history of maple sugaring with outdoor demonstrations from noon until 4 p.m. Maple products will be for sale provided by Roloson Brothers Maple Syrup. If the weather is too wet, they will be set up in the Environmental Education Center.

A Sweet Time

Cold nights and warm days this time of year mean it’s maple sugaring time at Montour Preserve. Come to one of our two public maple sugaring open houses to learn the process of taking maple sap and turning it into delicious maple syrup. An indoor session focuses on folklore and history of maple sugaring while outdoor demonstrations will take you from tree to table. Open houses are Saturday, February 26 and Sunday March 6 with programs beginning indoors at noon, 1, 2 and 3 p.m.
