What is the maple syruping tradition all about?
Maple syruping is a seasonal activity that supplements Ojibwe Heritage Class as we go from snowshoeing to basket making. Wolf Ridge taps approximately 40 sugar maple trees and conducts a small-scale demonstration sugar operation. Students will have the opportunity to participate in/visit Wolf Ridge’s sugar operation. Depending on the time of the season and weather students will discuss connections between syruping and Ojibwe people, tap a tree, collect sap, conduct a taste test, and discuss the boiling of the sap.
