Visitors are guided through the Maple Sugaring Process by the Oregon Ridge Staff and Volunteers as they visit stations demonstrating every step of the process. From the Sugarbush to the Sugar Shack, guests always enjoy this winter opportunity to get outside and learn about Maple Sugaring. Participants will learn what trees can be tapped, see sap dripping from trees that we have tapped, and visit several stations where we are boiling the sap we have collected to create syrup. We will also have pure Maple Syrup and Candy for sale (Syrup is available at the Nature Center year-round).

Registration is not required for individuals and families of less than 10 people. Groups of 10 – 15 must register in advance using the form below. We are not able to accommodate groups larger than 15 at our weekend events. Larger groups can book a weekday date and time from the School Field Trip page of our website.
