Native Americans long ago discovered how to tap maple trees for sap, to make maple syrup and maple sugar.  Join us on a short hike as we discuss the history of tapping, and tap a maple tree to taste some fresh sap and some finished syrup.

All participants are required to wear masks and practice physical distancing. 

Registration Required: Call Trailside at 708-366-6530.
