Learn Backyard Sugaring with DCP

Just in time for the upcoming maple sugaring season, join Darke County Parks to master a new woodland skill. At Shawnee Prairie on Saturday Feb. 18th at 10am participants will learn how to tap their own maples, how and when to collect the sap, and finally, how to go about turning that sap into maple goodness! Demonstrations and hands-on experience will ensure that by the end of the program, everyone will have the skills needed to produce your very own maple syrup. Please remember to dress for the weather and call ahead to register for this free program.

For more information about this or any other Darke County Parks program or to register, please call the Nature Center at (937) 548-0165.
