Here’s an opportunity for adults who want to try making their own tasty maple syrup! From choosing appropriate trees through tapping, collecting and evaporating maple sap, participants will learn, observe and practice the steps in the sugaring process, and discover how it can be done on a backyard scale. Information and resources will be provided for finding out more and getting started at home. The program is free, with equipment available to purchase. Registration is required by February 20. Space is limited and the workshop is nearly full.  Call 724-794-6011 to register.*
