CRCA Maple Madness – Tree Tapping Demonstration

Sunday, March 26th @ 10:30 AM - 2:30 PM

One of the things that keeps people coming back to our sugar bush each year is a chance to see how maple syrup is made, both today and in days gone by. As part of the CRCA’s annual Maple Madness celebration, tree tapping demonstrations will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day during March Break (Monday, March 13 to Friday, March 17) as well Sundays, March 12 and 19, 26 and April 2, also from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Check out the self-guided displays in the sugar bush and learn about sweet water, how to identify a sugar maple tree, measure it and how to use a brace-and-bit hand drill as you practise your tapping skills on a real log.
