Learn about maple syrup

Brad Kik, ISLAND's Co-Director, has been volunteering many winter hours in the Wagbo sugar bush. He has been spending days checking lines to ensure a smooth flow of sap once the spring thaw begins. View this video for a glimpse of his hard work, along with Doug Bedell and James Manning:

Wagbo recently announced its educational programs around the sugar bush. Visit the Wagbo Blog for details on the following workshops: Sugaring Folklore and Tradition, Bring it to a Boil: Evaporator Training, Maple Ecology, and Making Maple Syrup.

And don't miss the 7th Annual Maple Syrup Festival on Saturday, March 28th!

I'm very glad to know that Wagbo now has a blog - now I can follow the goings-on at their place.

The snow looked cold in your video :) It also looked clean and peaceful.
