A backyard maple experience
On what might be another snow-free winter Sunday at the Taconic Outdoor Education Center, (TOEC) the sap will at least be flowing, and the pancakes on the griddle as TOEC hosts its annual Maple Sugar Celebration on March 11. Join educators for a back yard maple experience. Observe both traditional and modern methods of collecting and boiling Sugar Maple sap, help hang a bucket, and spend time in the sugar house. Taste-testers welcome. There will be a Cross Cut Saw demonstration, and plenty of pure maple syrup for sale.
A pancake breakfast fortifies all this activity and will take place in the Lodge from 9 a.m. until noon. The cost is $7 for adults, $5 for children. For more information call 845-265-3773. The TOEC is located at 75 Mountain Laurel Lane, off Denningtown Road.
