Head up to the sugarbush to see the sugarhouse in action! Enjoy a taste of maple syrup as you learn about the journey of sap to syrup. Explore a sugarmaker’s tools, tap a sugar maple, add sap from our collection buckets to our bulk tank, go on a scavenger hunt throughout the sugarbush, and of course no maple celebration is complete without sugar-on-snow!


Visit OFES up in the sugarbush to find out about wildlife that loves to live in the woods. Enjoy ongoing live bird-on-hand presentations as well as some helpful hints about what other birds you may find at this time of year.


Gather around the fire circle to discover Abenaki sugaring traditions and enjoy storytelling with Chief Don Stevens and members of the Abenaki community. Ever wonder where maple syrup came from? Settle around the fire circle to learn how the Abenaki gathered and used maple syrup historically and how this wonderful gift from nature was given to the First Peoples of Vermont.

Please note, there will be no pancake breakfast this year.
