Have you ever wondered how maple syrup is made? If you already know, would you like to make your own?  If your answer is yes, then consider registering for DCR’s Breakheart Reservation Annual Maple Sugarin’ event in mid-March. Registration begins on Wednesday, February 1.  You will tour the syrup facility and learn how to identify maple trees in winter, how to tap a tree, and about sap boiling techniques. You’ll finish with a reward of pancakes and freshly-made maple syrup around a campfire! 

On Friday, February 3, visit DCR’s Breakheart Reservation for free movie night.  This cozy night will be made even cozier with hot cocoa, a roaring fire, and the ones you love enjoying a great family movie!
