The following description comes from the event organizer.

Did you know that sap from the bigleaf maple tree, native to the Pacific Northwest, can be made into syrup similar to sugar maple syrup from the Eastern United States? Join Melanie Douville from the Oregon Maple Project to learn about the history, science, process, and best practices for maple sugaring in the PNW. Take a guided walk on Arboretum trails to visit bigleaf maples that have been tapped, as well as watch a tree tapping demonstration. The program will conclude with a maple syrup tasting.

About the instructor: Melanie Douville is a freelance environmental art/science educator and interdisciplinary artist interested in cultivating connections between people and the natural world. Currently, she is fully immersed in the captivating world of bigleaf maple sugaring, exploring the traditional and sustainable practice of extracting maple sap to make syrup from these bountiful trees.
