Sugaring, the art of making maple syrup, has been practiced for thousands of years. The tradition began the Northeast United States centuries ago with the Native Americans and colonists. People of all ages are invited to see this tradition brought to life by Strawberry Hill Nature Preserve naturalists. You will learn how trees are tapped, view sap-collecting methods past and present, and see the boiling process that produces delicious maple syrup. Two public demonstrations, including a pancake breakfast, a local arts and craft fair; and local musician, are held at Camp Eder, Christian Camp & Retreat Center at 914 Mount Hope Road in Fairfield on February 22nd and March 1st!
