Norval “Maple Madness” on Sunday, March 24

It’s hard to believe but maple syrup season is right around the corner.

Find out more about how sap is transformed into syrup at our maple syrup open house on Sun, March 24 from noon to 3 p.m. at the Norval Outdoor School. Visitors can 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. Sap, syrup and maple fudge tastings will be offered.

Pancakes and sausages with Norval maple syrup, plus an assortment of other goodies, will be served in Stephen House. Admission is free and all members of the UCC community are welcome and free to bring family and friends. Dogs on leashes are welcome. Remember to wear footwear appropriate for walking outdoors.
