Sugaring at Sprague's with Pfeiffer Nature Center

Cattaraugus County , Chautauqua-Allegheny | Nature

Trees are crucial to life on earth for countless reasons.  They create oxygen, purify water, provide shelter and manufacture food.  Most food made by trees is produced when the weather is warm but there is a beloved food that specific trees make when the weather is still cold… maple syrup!  The Creation of maple syrup has been around for some 300 years and has a very interesting history.  Join us for a guided tour through the maple trees and sugaring operation at Sprague’s Maple Farms and learn the art of sugaring from our local experts.  Remain past the tour and sample the syrup during a delicious breakfast at the restaurant.

The tour is free and open to the public but the cost of breakfast is the responsibility of each participant. This event will be held at Sprague’s Maple Farms 1048 RT 305, Portville.  The group will meet for the tour outside the restaurant at the entrance farthest from the dining room. Space is limited.

Pre-registration is required and can be done through Pfeiffer Nature Center by 4 pm, Thursday, March 2nd, 2017.  Sign up on the programs Calendar on our website at www.pfeiffernaturecenter.org or contact the office at 716-933-0187.
