March can sometimes be tough. Everyone gets a little case of cabin fever from being cooped up inside all winter. A great opportunity to shake off the winter blues is to book a group tour or a school field trip to experience Cleveland Metroparks �History of Maple Sugaring� program.
The �History of Maple Sugaring� program can accommodate schools and groups during weekdays by appointment only.
Appointments can be scheduled on March 6 to 9 and 14 and 15 between 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. to walk through time along the Sugarbush Trail at Maple Grove Picnic Area in Rocky River Reservation in North Olmsted.
Groups can discover a real-time experience of the subjects, including natural history, Native American lore, cultural history, pioneer technology, science, and mathematics. Groups can also experience the maple sugaring process from collecting the sap to enjoying the sweet taste of delicious syrup!
This free program can be an appropriate supplement to curriculum for many grade levels.
Maple Grove Picnic Area is located off Valley Parkway in Rocky River Reservation, between Cedar Point Road and Spafford Road in Brook Park, south of Rocky River Nature Center.
For more information and to book a group tour, call 440-734-6660. Space is limited.
The �History of Maple Sugaring� is also open to the pubic on weekends from March 2 through March 17 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Get out of the classroom and learn first-hand the maple sugaring process at the �History of Maple Sugaring� in Cleveland Metroparks - part of your life, naturally!
