During this special time of year, the hidden winter bounty of nature is waiting to be “tapped.” Come out for a special, family-friendly event to learn about the art of maple sugaring – when the sap from trees is collected to make syrup. Enjoy a maple sugaring hike to trees tapped around the property, a cooking demonstration, and a tasting including local syrups from Tonoloway Farm in Highland County, VA. Preregistration recommended. You must sign up for a scheduled time. Times include 10, 10:30, 11 and 11:30 am and 1, 1:30, 2, 2:30 and 3pm.
This program involves a 45-minute long hike and is recommended for ages 4 years and up. The trails along which the hike will be led are unpaved and can be steep in places. They are not recommended for strollers or walkers.
