Culture Connect Featured Event
Maple syrup makes winter’s end sweet. As the days get warmer and the nights stay cold the maple sap flows. Just the right conditions for maple sugaring! Join IAIS Staff and Primitive Skills Practitioner Jim Dina for an afternoon (from 11a.m.-3 p.m.) celebrating the gift of Maple Sugar. Enjoy pancakes made by IAIS staff, local maple syrup, coffee & orange juice (served from 11 a.m.-1 p.m.) and learn how local Native Americans traditionally made maple syrup. Jim will demonstrate the technique of collecting sap and boiling it down into syrup as he discusses its importance to Native American culture. Children’s activities will run from 1p.m.-3 p.m.
