Maple Fest

Richard tapping a maple tree

Did you know the Arboretum taps more than 350 trees every winter? Learn more about our trees and the maple tapping process at several interpretive stops at Frog Hollow Workshop and the Maple Sugar House including sugar maple tree tapping demos and tree identification. Visitors will watch Arboretum staff cook down the sap to make pure maple syrup. Afterward, warm up in the Eatery (open from 9 a.m.-3 p.m.), offering a variety of maple-themed items for purchase.
