April 15, 2014, Who doesn’t love the sweet smells of maple syrup as it’s being evaporated off during the process of making maple syrup. Warm days and cools night are the perfect ingredient for making that delicacy that we love to pour over pancakes, waffles and french toast. Maple syrup production has come a long ways from the days of horses crisscrossing the maple syrup trees and “syrupers” pouring the maple sap into a large collection devise. Travel with us and learn about the new techniques being used to collect sap and turning into syrup. Though Aroostook County is not nearly as famous as Vermont is in the production of syrup, we can lay claim to several significant syrup producers’ right in our backyards. Trip will depart from the Caribou Wellness and recreation Center at 9:30am and return by 3:30pm. Trip will include a visit to two maple syrup producers with a sit down lunch in between. $30.00 fee includes transportation and sit down lunch. Inclement weather date is Thursday, April 17, 2014.
