How sweet! Greenwich Land Trust hosts Maple Sugar Day

February 24, 2019

GREENWICH — One sign that spring is on the horizon is when the maple sap begins to run.

The Greenwich Land Trust shared a lesson in how to tap a sugar maple tree with a demonstration on Saturday at its 4-acre Mueller Preserve.

Will Kies, executive director of the GLT, hammered a tap into a tree and set up a bucket to begin harvesting the sweet stuff. Kids got a chance to taste the pure sap after it began to run. The GLT also showed how the sap is boiled down to make maple syrup.

The event featured also demonstration stations, candy crafting, arts and crafts and activities for the whole family.
