Jan. 12, 2023 – The winter months usher in a new season of activities in Westchester County, including the art of making maple syrup. The Westchester County Department of Parks, Recreation and Conservation is offering sugaring events throughout the county this season.

Events range from tree tapping, sugar house tours, cooking events plus tastings and run through March.

Westchester County Executive George Latimer said, “The sugaring events provide families the opportunity to not only get out during the winter months, but to also learn more about making syrup from beginning to end. Starting with tapping and collecting, boiling and bottling, the sugaring events are a great way to learn more about the treats nature has to offer.”

The Commissioner of the Westchester County Department of Parks, Recreation and Conservation, Kathy O’Connor said, “Our Conservation Division does a great job every season planning events across the county for the public to experience the sugaring process.”

Several events require pre-registration and fill up quickly. View the list of events and register today.
