Maple Madness Open House at Norval on March 28
As days go 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 syrup at a maple syrup open house, Monday, March 28, 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. We’ll be offering taste tests of sap and syrup as well as maple fudge.
Back at Stephen House, we’ll have pancakes and sausages with real Norval maple syrup, plus an assortment of other goodies. Best of all, admission is free and all members of the UCC community are welcome. Dogs on leashes are welcome. Remember to wear appropriate footwear for walking outdoors. For more information, please call the Association Office at 416-484-8629 or click here to sign up.
