Maple Syrup Field Trips

Students of all ages will invoke all their senses while learning about an important Minnesota tradition.

Field trips typically include the following activities:
  • Tapping Demonstrations
  • Sap Collecting
  • Winter Tree Identification
  • Why Sap Flows
  • History of Syruping
  • Tour of Maple Sugar Shack

The Minnesota DNR's publication, Minnesota Conservation Volunteer, has a Young Naturalist section on maple syruping. Read the article and view the teacher's guide to using it in the classroom. The information is a great pre or post activity surrounding a field trip to the Saint John's Arboretum Sugar Shack!
