(St. Paul, MN) – The annual tradition of tapping maple trees for syrup is a sure sign of spring.

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is offering free programs around the state to help people learn about making maple syrup.

Minneopa State Park will hold a Maple Syrup Demonstration on Saturday, March 14.  Attendees will meet at the picnic shelter on the waterfall side of the park.  A naturalist will demonstrate what it takes to tap a tree, collect the sap, and boil it to produce sweet syrup.  There will also be a discussion on the history of tapping trees.
