Families with children ages 6 & under are invited to join us for the 11:00 a.m. session of the Children's Maple Tree Tap event at Botna Bend Park on March 3rd. This special maple tree tapping program geared toward younger learners & their parents.

Three program sessions will be offered on March 3rd, participants are asked to choose either the 9:00 a.m. session, 10:00 a.m. session, or 11:00 a.m. session. Each session will last approximately 45 minutes. We ask that only families with children age 6 & under attend this program. If you are a family with older children or adults interested in maple tree tapping you are invited to attend our all ages event instead.

This special tree tapping program will introduce younger learners to the sweet world of maple syrup in a fun way. Hands on activities will help young learners understand the tapping & refining process used to create our own special maple syrup.
