One sweet experience The two-hour tours, which follow the K-12 science curriculum, start at 9:30 a.m. or 12:30 p.m. To helpmake the programmore accessible, SNC offers a bussing subsidy of up to $150 per eligible school. Additionally, SNC is offeringMaple Education Lesson Kits to be loaned to schools and groups who are unable to visit the programming site.

One of the sweetest educational oppor- tunities is returning to the South Nation jurisdiction for a 17 th season. South Nation Conservation (SNC), in partnership with Sand Road Maple Farm in Moose Creek, is once again offering its popular Maple Education Program, which provides a unique hands-on history of the production of maple syrup. Guided by SNC interpreters, pre-booked K-12 school groups enjoy a leisurely hike through the sugar bush while learning how maple syrup makes it from the tree to your breakfast table.The bilingual program is of- feredMarch 7 through April 7, and interested schools must book their visits with SNC in advance. Tours are also available for adult groups. The Sand Road log cabin remains open to all visitors, even while tours are being conducted.

Programparticipants learn all about the evolution of the sugaring process, fromboil- ing sap in a hollowed-out log as the First Nations did, to the huge cast iron kettles of the early settlers, to today’s modern evapora- tors that transform sap into sweet-tasting maple syrup. And, if the weatherman co- operates, participants will see maple syrup being made. “While there’s plenty of fun to be had during an SNC/Sand Road outing, the true emphasis is on education,” said Program

Coordinator, Kelsey Smith. Students learn how to identify various tree species, woodlot management, and the role forests play within watersheds. “It’s all about connecting students to our

natural environment with the understanding that people are part of the environment and not separate from it,” added Smith. “Lessons learned at Sand Road Maple Farm can last a lifetime.”
