You might remember that back in January we had a great afternoon hanging out at the Stamford Museum & Nature Center. On March 7th, they will be hosting their 10th Annual Maple Sugar Sunday. This event is one of my favorites. I love Maple Syrup. Maple sugar. Maple Sugar candies. Anything Maple. In fact, DH & I have been wanting to tap our big, ole' maple in the backyard & make some of our own.
Some info from the Stamford Nature Center's website...
The maple sugar season peaks on March 7th as they celebrate their 10th Annual Maple Sugar Sunday.
At the festival visitors can learn how the Native Americans created sugar from sap using the "hot rock" method, see how colonists used large iron cauldrons to boil the sap over the open fire and then stop by the maple sugar house to see their modern evaporation technique in action.
There will be lots of sweet treats and the ever popular pancake breakfast. Other activities include maple-themed crafts, games, storytelling, music and much more!
The folks over at the nature center have been kind enough to offer up 4 guest passes to one of my lucky readers. The passes can be used for the upcoming festival...or, for anytime you might want to make a visit over there.
