Every mid-February through roughly the end of March (depending on the weather), maple sap runs rich with sugar that when evaporated and condensed becomes maple syrup or even crystallized maple sugar. Historically, Native Americans and then European settlers tapped maple trees to create both sugar and syrup. Similar methods are still used today. 

Join the Welty Environmental Center in celebrating maple sap season. Take a self-guided hike through Big Hill Park’s sugar bush to learn more about the wonders of maple sugar. There will be ten educational signs posted to guide you through the sugar bush.
