Join Appleton Staff for a leisurely stroll along our farm roads and past our maple trees during the maple sugaring season. You’ll learn some of the history of maple sugaring as well as the science behind what makes maple sap run in our trees. See firsthand how we collect the sap that turns into delicious maple syrup.
Be sure to wear weather appropriate clothing and boots or shoes that are appropriate for hiking in potentially wet and muddy spots or over uneven terrain. All hikes are weather permitting.
Space is limited for this event and pre-registration is strongly recommended
We will meet at the Farm Offices building.
