Small Group Maple Tours

WAITING LIST BEYOND CAPACITY


New for 2021 Shepherd’s Corner Ecology Center will be offering small group maple sugaring tours. These tours, which will be two hours in length, have a capacity of 8 participants and will cost $50 per group. Due to the nature of maple season we will begin booking as the season kicks off in late winter 2021.

Learn about maple sugaring from tree sap out the tap, to syrup on your pancakes. Come see our boiling process, and taste our syrup, and more! We kindly ask that all attendees wear masks.

More information will be released on our website and Facebook as maple season approaches. Tours will most likely occur Monday – Friday between the hours of 9:00 am and 3:00 pm with at least one Saturday option.

Led by Miranda Land & Dustin McQuade, Staff and Shepherd’s Corner volunteers.

Shepherd’s Corner Ecology Center is an outreach of The Dominican Sisters of Peace.
