Hands-on Heritage: February- Sugarbush

Hands-on Heritage: February- Sugarbush


Come to learn a new/old skill! 

Tyler State Park is partnering with Nichole Gerding of Thankful Sage Farm School to bring you ‘Hands-On Heritage.’

In each of these programs, we will discuss local history in context of the season, and try our hand at some heritage skills to take home to share with our families.  

We are offering two options for classes- a Monday evening session which allows older children (12 and up) to join their parent/guardian (please note, we cannot be responsible for your child) and an adults only Tuesday morning session. 

*PLEASE NOTE- there is now a Tuesday afternoon drop-off class option for homeschool teens (12 and up) in a separate listing


What: “Sugarbush”

Maple syrup has roots older than the colonies themselves. We will be discussing early lore, customs, and the process of making maple syrup AND try our hand at cooking down our own sap gathered in Tyler State Park. All materials supplied. Dress warm, as we will be cooking down the sap outdoors.

When: Monday, 2/10  6-7:30 pm

            Tuesday, 2/11  10-11:30am

Where: The Classroom at Tyler State Park 

Who: Monday- 12 and Up when accompanied by Adult
