Join the Troy Historic Village and Troy Nature Society on three sweet Saturdays in March! Discover how maple trees make sugar and how people have harvested it through the ages to make maple syrup.
We’ll venture into the woods, sample sap, participate in activities to learn more about syrup making, and stop in the sugar shed to see the wood-stoked sap evaporator in action. Guests will visit an historic sugar camp just like those found on Troy area farms 100 years ago!
In the nature center library, meet a story teller who will share a maple story or two. The tour finishes with syrup tasting over warm mini-waffles and another special sweet maple treat!
