Ever wonder what all the buckets and hoses are on the trees this time of year? When the days are warm but nights are cool, sap begins to flow in New Hampshire’s maple trees, and the maple-sugaring season gets underway. It’s the first sign of Spring!!
Join Beaver Brook Association for this FREE family event to learn about and celebrate this historical New Hampshire tradition.
Groups will gather Sunday, March 17 at 1:00 and 1:30
