Join us on a sweet adventure! We’ll start with a beautiful hike through the winter wonderland of the Hudson Highlands. Then, we’ll make our way to the Hudson Highlands Nature Museum for a walk to the Sugar Bush Shack. As we make our way on this sweet trail, we’ll learn all about how maple syrup is made. “As winter ends, it’s maple sugaring time! Learn how to identify and tap sugar maple trees, discover sugaring techniques used by Native Americans, pioneers, and modern-day farmers, and see evaporation in action!” (Hudson Highlands Nature Museum)

It’s going to be a syrupy good time!
