Maple Sugar Demo


Wooden trough used to make maple sugar

We're joining in the Kearsarge Maple Weekend

demonstrations this year.

We'll be boiling sap in a kettle, stirring syrup in a

wooden trough (like the one in the picture)

until in turns to sugar and telling an

Abenaki maple syrup story.

Sample the sap and syrup and traditional Native

foods flavored with maple.

We'll also have a small exhibit of objects in our

collection that relate to maple sugaring.


Come help us stir!
