“Maple Madness” open house at Norval on March 25

Maple Madness at Norval (21)As days grow warm and sunny and winter gives way to spring, it’s a sure bet that maple syrup season is right around the corner.

Find out more about how sap is transformed into maple syrup at an open house on Sunday, March 25 from 12 to 3 p.m. at the Norval Outdoor School. Visitors will have the chance to tour the sugar bush and learn how trees are tapped to collect sap using buckets and tubes. They’ll also be able to see an evaporator demonstration and learn how sap is boiled into syrup. Taste tests of sap, syrup and maple fudge will be offered.

Back at Stephen House, pancakes and sausages with real Norval maple syrup plus an assortment of other goodies will be served. Admission is free and all members of the UCC community are welcome along with dogs on leashes. Please remember to wear appropriate footwear for walking outdoors.
