On this easy two mile ramble we will use our senses to witness the awakening of the Norrie Point uplands. Spicebush, skunk cabbage, spring peepers, and maybe a mourning cloak butterfly are just a sampling of the signs of spring that we will see, hear, or even smell.

Join us each Saturday afternoon in March for an introduction to maple sugaring, from sap to syrup. You’ll get to twirl a brace drill, pound a spile, inspect the sap flow in our sugarbush, enjoy the aroma of sap boiling down in our evaporator and take the maple taste test. A local maple producer will be on site to answer questions and offer a variety of maple products for sale. Organized groups are welcome but should call Five Rivers at 518-475-0291 to register.
