The Michigan Forests Presentation @ The Library
Black Gold: Maple Syrup!
Monday, March 17
The Portage Lake District Library will launch the third in a series of SIX programs about Michigan Forests on Monday, March 17. All are invited to attend “Black Gold: Maple Syrup” from 6:30-8:00 pm in the community room of the library.
Find out how trees make sap, and how we tap trees to get their sap for making maple syrup! Forester and special guest, Jim Rivard, from Michigan Tech’s School of Forest Resources, will explain the history of making maple syrup, how to pick and tap trees, and how to boil the sap to make sweet syrup.
Following the presentation, families will have the opportunity to participate in several hands-on activities. Participants will taste REAL maple syrup, examine tree cookies for healthy growth, play tree games, practice tree ID, and be in a race to see who can carry the most sap!
