|Maple Sugaring at the Somerset County Park Commission’s Environmental Education Center 2015
Maple sugaring is a tradition in the Northeast that began centuries ago with the Native Americans and colonists. People of all ages are invited to see this tradition brought to life at the Environmental Education Center (EEC). You will see how trees are tapped, view sap-collecting methods past and present, and see the boiling process that produces delicious New Jersey maple syrup. This 90-minute program is conducted at our Sugar Shack, a ½-mile hike from the EEC. Please arrive at the EEC 20-30 minutes before the program start time. All maple sugaring programs are held outside at the Sugar Shack, except in the event of extreme or dangerous weather, in which case the Naturalist will decide to demonstrate maple sugaring indoors. Organized groups (such as schools) may schedule weekday demonstrations by calling the EEC at 908 766-2489, ext. 332.
