The sugarbush at the Green Mountain Audubon Center in Huntington is usually bustling with activity from the moment the first maple tree gets tapped in late February through our annual Sugar on Snow Parties in late March. We love to share the magic of the maple sugaring season with our Audubon community every year. Since we can’t do that in person this year, we made a series of short videos for you all about the process of Bird-Friendly Maple Sugaring: tapping a tree, gathering sap, boiling sap in the sugarhouse, and canning, grading and tasting the syrup! We’ve also added bonus videos about searching for our Golden Tap, a video about how our Bird-Friendly Maple Project makes a sugarbush good habitat for birds, and a sweet tutorial on how you can make Sugar on Snow at home on your kitchen stove.
We miss having you all out at the Audubon Center for Sugar on Snow parties, but we know you’ll enjoy this fun series on Maple sugaring.
The trails at the Green Mountain Audubon Center are still open from dawn until dusk daily. Come on out (keeping your social distance) and search for the Golden Tap.
