Tap A Tree
Sugarbush season has begun! Explore the natural and cultural history of sugaring in Michigan through this program for all ages. A Blandford Educator will take you along our trails to explore the origins of maple syrup from tree identification to sap collection. Each registered group will be assigned a spile and bucket to tap a tree at Blandford and are encouraged to revisit Blandford throughout March to check the progress of their sap flow!
Children 2 and Under: Free (must still be registered)
This program is recommended for ages 6 and up.
