SPRING SESSION 2023


MARCH 15 | From Maple Tree to Maple Syrup
Enjoy a walk around Remick Farm as maple sugaring season is celebrated statewide. Participants will learn how to identify maple trees, learn how to tap and collect sap, and visit the sugar house to see the process of boiling sap down to syrup!

New! ADVANCED CLASS For ages 12 & above
MARCH 22 | Sugar Science
Maple sugaring season is one of our favorite times of the year. Which maple trees produce the most sugar in their sap? Participants will take a scientific approach to sugaring season as they use equipment to test a variety of maple trees on the property. Participants will formulate questions and draw conclusions to try and discover the science behind the syrup!


APRIL 12 | Wildlife Habitat on the Farm
The farm ecosystem can be a home to wildlife too! Participants will investigate some of the native animals that make Remick Farm home, and help the program team construct and install animal-friendly shelters, such as bee hotels and bluebird boxes.


MAY 17 | Wildflowers
April showers (hopefully) bring May wildflowers! Take a ramble through the forest and farm to find as many early wildflowers as possible. Participants will learn about the life cycle of plants, and why these spring wonders flower so early.


JUNE 14 | Leather Skills
Leather has been an important human resource for thousands of years, and is still an important farm product to this day. Participants will learn where leather comes from, what it is used for, and how to preserve and protect leather products so they can last as long as possible. Participants will also construct a small, purposeful leather item!
