Sugaring season is here!

We have had warm days and cool nights lately and the sap is running! Please join us for one of our Maple Sugar Madness programs on Saturdays and Sundays in March from 10:00-12:00 or 1:00-3:00. Visitors will learn how to identify a sugar maple tree, drill into and tap a tree, taste some sap, watch the boiling process and sample the finished syrup! The cost is $8 (members of NHA) or $10 (non-members) or a family rate of $24 (members) and $30 (non-members). Plan to bring snowshoes if you have them, or you can borrow some of ours. Please call us at (603) 366-5695 to reserve your place in one of the programs!

Interesting frost

This morning we had a school group for a morning sugaring program. Walking down to the sugar house we noticed quite beautiful three-dimensional frost on the small trees, shrubs and weeds along the edge of the field. By the time we came back up an hour later, it was gone.
