New Canaan Nature Center’s Adopt-a-Tree Kickoff

February 4 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm


Don’t get stuck indoors this winter! Get outside for some quality family time by adopting a tree for maple syrup season! This season-long program begins with Adopt a Tree Kickoff on February 4th. Syrup families/groups come for one time block to learn the process and take part in choosing and tapping a tree for the season (takes approx. 30 minutes).

After the Kickoff Event, participants will then collect sap 1-3 times a week (depending on sap flow conditions) for the entire syrup season (typically 4-6 weeks) and take part in boil downs where REAL maple syrup is made right here at NCNC.

You’ll even get your very own bottle of NCNC-made maple syrup at our end of season celebration in March (date TBD).

Online Pre-registration: Now Open!
**Please Note: The 9:30 AM timeslot is now full. 11AM, 12:30PM, and 2PM have spaces remaining**
