Year Round

The Nature Place offers year-round programs to help folks connect with nature throughout the seasons!

My son tells me that our monthly excursion to The Nature Place is his favorite day of the month.  It is wonderful for the two of us to engage in a shared interest far from screens, traffic, and crowds.Year-Round program participant

Maple Sugaring

Learn all about maple trees and discover what it takes to turn sap into syrup. Tap a maple tree, taste the sap that drips out, set it boiling over a fire, and enjoy thickened maple syrup over crushed ice. This entirely outdoor, free program has limited spots! Registration in advance is required.

We had a sweet time in 2023. Please check back in Winter 2024 for program date and times.


We will be happy to answer any questions you have.
