Maple Syrup Hikes

March 9–10, 16–17, 23–24

Learn how trees work and about the sweet sap of sugar maples. Ryerson Woods is one of the few places in Lake County where climate conditions are right for maple syrup production, and where trees grow to a diameter and height that allows for tapping. Everyone gets a taste. Program also available as a school or scout field trip.
