Local children will get a chance this weekend to learn how maple syrup is made and try it themselves.
The North Grenville Historical Society is inviting residents to an educational seminar where children will be able to learn the traditional ways the syrup is harvested and processed.
It’s part of a new series of workshops called “KidsKlub” the society is running over the coming weeks, meant to spark an interest in local history in children.
Participants will be able to see the trees and buckets used to harvest the syrup, learn about its history, and try making bannock, a kind of fried bread.
The seminar is happening in Bishop’s Mills on Saturday, March 11th, from 9:00 to 11:00 AM.
In order to register your child, you’ll need to make a $10 donation to the Historical Society.
Staff members say if the weather isn’t appropriate for syrup harvesting that day, other outdoor activities will be available instead.
You can find more information, and details for how to pay for registration in advance, on the North Grenville Historical Society website.
