White Owl Native Ancestry hosts a maple syrup live event!

The Outdoor & Environmental Education team will be live from the White Owl Native Ancestry Sugarbush on Wednesday March 24th at 1pm.  We will be sharing the story of maple sugaring from original techniques to modern production methods.

We are especially excited to hear from land-based Indigenous educators Garrison McCleary, Dave Skene and Sarina Perchak.  This is a great opportunity to learn traditional practices and teachings around making maple sugar and maple syrup.  Teachers can expect to find curriculum connections in social studies, science and math.  We hope you can join us; it is going to be sweet!
