Explore Our Sugarbush

Head up to the sugarbush to see the sugarhouse in action! Enjoy a taste of maple syrup as you learn about the journey of sap to syrup. Explore a sugarmaker’s tools, tap a sugar maple, add sap from our collection buckets to our bulk tank, go on a scavenger hunt throughout the sugarbush, and of course no maple celebration is complete without sugar-on-snow!

Visit OFES up in the sugarbush to find out about wildlife that loves to live in the woods. Enjoy ongoing live bird-on-hand presentations as well as some helpful hints about what other birds you may find at this time of year. Plus, live bird presentations by OFES in the sugarbush, too!
