Maple sugaring is a tradition practiced by diverse cultures throughout Connecticut’s history and continues into the present day. Our special guests for this program will explain the importance of maple to the Algonkian tribes of the Northeast, as observed in their customs, design motifs, and cultural traditions. You will also glimpse the variety of current-day sugaring operations around the state. Not least, we’ll explore the fascinating ways that a maple sugarbush can support wildlife, especially how it can help our declining forest birds. Join us for a delightfully “sweet” program on sugaring in Connecticut, past and present, human and wild!
