Sweet demonstration opens near Princeton

March 21, 2014 by  

The weekend’s Maple Syrup Demonstration will teach people about the process of making the product and includes a walk through the bush to see how the trees are tapped, as well as how the sap is collected.

Poster printing might have been one of the methods used to share information about this outdoor event with people who reside in the community.

An outdoor activity, this event is suitable for all ages and will focus on the making of real maple syrup from start to finish. Not only will families enjoy a hike outdoors while learning about tapping trees, they will return to the sugar shack at the trail center to learn about how the sap is cooked down into syrup, as well as the finishing process that is used. Finally, as will be much anticipated, there will be a sampling of the rich syrup for each guest.

The demonstration is on-going, so guests can arrive at any time during the open hours, and admission is free. The Maple Syrup Demonstration will be occurring on Saturday, March 22, from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm at the Lake Maria State Park located at 11411 Clementa Avenue NW in Monticello, Minnesota – just a short drive from Princeton.
