Season Over: Maple Sugaring Tours 2022

Updated: Monday March, 14th
A huge thank you to the folks that were able to join us for small group tours this sugaring season. With the rise in temperatures as we get closer to spring our season has come to an end.

——————————————————————-

For the second year Shepherd’s Corner Ecology Center will be hosting small group maple sugaring tours.

These tours, which will be approximately two hours in length, have a capacity of 10 participants and will cost $60 per group. Due to the nature of maple season we will begin booking as the season kicks off this may be in late winter 2022. The season ‘begins’ generally after a hard freeze when temperatures fluctuate below and above freezing. Tentatively this may be at the start of February.

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! Masks are optional.

More information will be released on our website and Facebook page as maple season approaches. Tours will most likely occur Monday – Friday between the hours of 9:00 am and 3:00 pm. Tours involve walking on uneven ground, and will be outdoors. We ask that you dress for the weather.

Tours will be 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.

 

maple sugaring season 2022, small group tours, $60 up to ten folks. Email scecologycenter@gmail.com to be notified as to when booking begins.

Being Resolute: January Labyrinth Walk*
January 8th Saturday 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm
MAXIMUM OF 15 PARTICIPANTS

Suggested Donation: $5
Facilitated by John Seryak, Labyrinth Caretaker
Programs have a minimum of 5 participants.

Yes, we are just a bit more of a week into the new year of 2022. It is a common practice for many of us to make resolutions as we begin a new year; a new start. Realistically, many of our resolutions are short lived without the results we were imagining. This evening as we journey, by foot, on this metaphorical path of our lives, let us consider the parts of our lives where we are steadfastly resolute: purposeful, determined, and unwavering. In these we can find joy and satisfaction.

Our labyrinth is located on Wengert Road, at the second drive to the right. Please wear comfortable shoes. Everyone is welcome! No previous meditation experience or experience walking labyrinths is required.
