From sap to syrup

Continue reading below

It’s sugaring season at Moose Hill Wildlife Sanctuary, which presents its annual Maple Sugaring Festival on March 11, 17, and 18. Visitors can see maple sap turned into syrup and get a taste. Take a 90-minute guided tour on a wooded trail, where people will portray historical characters at a Native American and Colonial site going about their daily activities, including making the syrup. At the Mass Audubon sanctuary’s Nature Center, visitors can sample hot pancakes with maple syrup and other maple treats. The event includes a children’s craft table and quiz of maple sugar knowledge. Tours will leave every 15 minutes from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Preregistration is recommended, as the event often sells out. Admission is $7 in advance or $8 the day of the festival, and children age 2 and under are free. For reservations, call 781-784-5691. - Jennette Barnes
