New Canaan Nature Center’s Adopt-a-Tree Kickoff

February 3 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm

AAT 2024 YLLwCo.tmp

Don’t get stuck indoors this winter! Get outside for some quality family time by adopting a tree for maple syrup season! This season-long program begins with the Adopt a Tree Kickoff Event on February 3rd where syrup families/groups come for one time block to learn the process and take part in choosing and tapping a tree for the season (takes approx. 30 minutes).
After the Kickoff Event, participants will then collect sap 1-3 times a week (depending on sap flow conditions) for the entire syrup season (typically 4-6 weeks) and take part in boil downs where REAL maple syrup is made right here at NCNC.
You’ll even get your very own bottle of NCNC-made maple syrup at our end of season celebration in March (date TBD).
Pre-registration opens January 8th and is required: https://newcanaannature.org/adopt-a-tree/
Register for one of four timeslots to tap your tree: 9:30am, 11am, 12:30pm or 2pm
