Maple Syrup Saturday - Adopt a Buck Experience
March 13, 2021 @ 8:00AM — 12:00PM Central Time (US & Canada)
Take your love of maple syrup to the next level when your family adopts a bucket and comes out to tap your own maple tree!
Join Bubolz Nature Preserve on Saturday, March 13, 2021 to celebrate maple syrup season!
Join us for this year's Maple Syrup Saturday - Adopt a Bucket Experience with your family. Take your love of maple syrup to the next level when your family adopts your very own bucket for our 2021 syrup season. Each family who adopts a bucket will join us at the preserve for the experience of tapping your own maple tree and hanging your bucket to collect sap throughout the syrup season.
Each registered family with receive a PDF, via e-mail, to decorate as they wish to help dress up their bucket. On March 13th you will bring your design with you to the preserve to be laminated and attached to your bucket.
After your bucket is ready you will hike down the trail to one of the sugarbush areas on the preserve. A naturalist will give you the supplies you need and instructions on how to tap your tree. The naturalist will be there to answer any questions you may have about the process of collecting the sap and turning it into maple syrup. We will take a picture of your family by your tree once it is tapped and your bucket is hung and email it to you after the event.
No Maple Syrup Saturday is complete without trying some of the sweet stuff! All participants will receive a cup of ice-cream topped with maple syrup made here at Bubolz.
Come back all syrup season to come see your bucket hanging from the tree you tapped.
By adopting a bucket you are supporting the environmental education we offer at Bubolz. Join us for this years experience with your family and create memories that will last a lifetime.
$45 per family
We hope to be able to safely bring back our pancake and porkies breakfast next year and continue tours of the sugar shack to see how we make maple syrup at Bubolz.
