Bigleaf Maple Syrup Workshop
Fall 2019 – Concrete
This workshop is now full
Sugaring bigleaf maple
A delicious hobby for forest property owners
A common misconception is that our native bigleaf maple is not suitable for syrup production. On the contrary–bigleaf maple on the West Coast produces an exquisite syrup that rivals anything the eastern U.S. or Canada have to offer. Imagine a rich, buttery maple flavor with a hint of vanilla.
In this workshop, you will learn how to get started with sugaring your maple trees. We’ll cover the basics of the process from your trees to your breakfast table, including hands-on demos. We’ll start in the classroom and then head out for a field trip to see the process in action.
