Protecting our rural character and natural resources

                   through community-based land conservation.

 

 

 SATURDAY, MARCH 24TH — 11 AM

 

When the sap starts flowing, it’s time to head over to the “Sugar Shack” on Headquarters Road to learn about the maple syrup-making process. For years, Craig Schneiderwind has overseen the operation at this preserved farm in Tinicum. He explains the process from start to finish, offers some hands-on opportunities, and, of course, tastings. This event is lots of fun for the kids.
