Backyard Maple Tapping Class, February 23 2019

Many in the commercial maple syrup industry started by tapping trees and boiling sap with friends and family.

On Saturday, February 23, 2019, the Extension Iron County office hosted two Backyard Maple Tapping Classes.  Same topic, but two different experiences as guided by two great presenters!
