Maple Melodies 2 PM
April 7 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
From the musical “tap, tap, tap” of tapping a tree to the “thunk, thunk, thunk” of sap filling a bucket, to the “mmm, mmm good” of pure Michigan maple syrup. Join Don Snoeyink from Thornapple Woodlands for a unique, family friendly presentation; learn the legend of maple syrup, how it is produced and why it was so important to Native Americans and early American settlers. Plus, learn how to identify a maple tree even after its leaves have fallen, observe equipment used in “back yard” maple syrup production and savor pure Michigan maple syrup on vanilla ice cream. Space is limited. Registration required; call 269-673-4625.
