The following was submitted by the Nashua River Watershed Association: 

The sap is not running quite yet, so the Nashua River Watershed Association (NRWA) is rescheduling its “Maple Sugaring Workshop for Families” to Saturday, March 15th, from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m., at our River Resource Center at 592 Main Street in Groton.  

On the 15th, we’ll celebrate a classic New England treat—fresh maple syrup, a delicious sign that spring is not far off.  

This workshop is appropriate for all ages, but especially fun for those with children ages 4 to 10; and backpack babies are welcome.  We’ll explore the entire process of making maple syrup, from identifying a sugar maple, to drilling and tapping the tree, to boiling down the sap to make syrup. And, we’ll play an active sugaring game, read a book about maples, and enjoy a delicious sample.  

Fee: NRWA members- $6/person or $18/family; Non-members $8/person or $24/family.  Pre-registration is required.  To register, please contact Mary Marro, NRWA Education Director, at (978) 448-0299, or email MaryM@NashuaRiverWatershed.org. 

The NRWA is a non-profit environmental organization that depends on memberships for support.
