Maple Syrup Days – Past & Present
Program takes place at Lloyd A. Stage Nature Center, 6685 Coolidge, Troy
Saturdays March 3, 10, and 17
March is maple month! Share in a sweet local tradition when you join the Troy Historical Society and Troy Nature Society for Maple Syrup Days. Take a guided trek through the woods to discover how 1800s pioneers like Chester and Zenas Goodrich produced maple sugar—on land that would one day become part of Stage Nature Center! See how maple syrup is made in modern times with a stop at the sugar shed to see the wood-stoked sap evaporator in action. Sample maple treats and make a craft to take home. Shop for Michigan-made maple cream, sriracha sauce, mustard, spices and of course, syrup.
Tours last 1.5 hours and start every 30 minutes between 9am and 3pm. Register for a specific day and time at www.stagenaturecenter.org. Walk-ins are welcome the day of the program on a space available basis only. Price: Teens & Adults: $9 | Children ages 4-12: $6 | TNS & THS Members: $6 | Children under 4 years are free.
