  • Maple Sugaring Field Trips Maple Sugaring Field Trips
    February 15, 2017 - 11:00 am

    Teachers!!!
    Maple Sugaring:
    A collaborative field trip between the Pratt Nature Center and Great Brook Sugar House at Sullivan Farm.

    Program Length: Two Hours

    Program Description: Smell the Sugar. See the Steam. Students will gather around a campfire and listen to Native American and Colonial folklore and legend as they learn how we turn maple sap into the sweet treat we ALL love!
    We will travel through time to a Civil War Era flat pan before heading off into the sugar bush to tap a few maple trees.
    Students will use an auger and collect a bucket or two of sap. They will also see a demo of modern day tubing that is used to gather sap more efficiently. We will then get back on your bus and travel to Great Brook Sugar House to see a modern day Sugar House and evaporator. The field trip wouldn’t be complete without a quick taste of 100 % pure Maple Syrup!

    We can accommodate morning and afternoon classes.
    The cost is $180.00 per time slot. Approx. 50 students

    Mid-February through March.

    All Ages

    Completely OUTSIDE! Dress Appropriate to Weather.
