Maple Sugaring at the Hermitage Museum
Visit the Hermitage this President's Day Weekend for an exiting hands-on event!
The Hermitage Master Gardeners will be tapping about 15 trees on the grounds of the National Historic Landmark. Families and friends are invited to learn how to tap maple trees and the importance of maple sugaring to the Lenape and early Dutch and English settlers in Northern New Jersey. Children 12 and older and adults will also be able to tap the trees with the Master Gardeners.
Guests will be sent home with the equipment to tap the trees in their own yards and instructions on boiling the sap into syrup.
Please select from one of three tap times below - 1:00pm, 2:00pm. and 3:00pm.
The rain or heavy-snow date for this event Sunday, February 18.
All proceeds benefit the The Hermitage Museum.
