(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.
