Maple Tree Tapping Demonstration 2024

1/27/2024 from 9:30 AM to 11:00 AM ET

Maple syrup. Yum! Have you ever wondered how this delectable treat makes its way from the tree onto your pancakes? Join FBRP and Stockton University's Dr. Matt Olson, Professor of Environmental Science and Forestry, and Naturalist, Samantha Steele, for a demonstration of maple syrup tapping and learn about tree physiology and sap flow, winter tree identification, and maple tapping basics. They will be tapping some of our native red maple trees, and installing tubing to enable sap collection.

Want to take the experience a step further? Registered participants have the option of signing up to collect the sap for syrup production (and consumption!) in their own homes. Download the documents on this page for more information about this opportunity and syrup collection and production. Please indicate if you are interested in joining the collection project when you fill out the registration form.
