This training is for people interested in volunteering with the Kellogg Biological Station to assists the MSU Kellogg Forest with maple syrup production. Production runs from the end of February through the month of March. During this time period the sap flow is weather dependent. We are looking for temperatures rise above freezing during the day but drop back below freezing at night.

Maple Syrup Production Training Activities will include:

  • Tour of the Maple Manor and discuss volunteers’ duties such as collecting sap, making syrup, canning syrup
  • Tour the sugar bush and discuss volunteers’ duties such as checking sap amounts and collect sap as needed
  • Sign up for specific tasks volunteers would like to take part in
