As the cold winter months slowly slip away and the forest floor comes to life, maple syrup season is truly one of the first signs of spring.  And what better way to celebrate the coming of spring than to attend How Sweet It Is! – the annual Maple Sugar Fest at Reeves-Reed Arboretum.

Enjoy a brisk winter afternoon outdoors at the Arboretum learning the steps involved in turning tree sap into delicious maple syrup.  There will be tapping and cooking demonstrations, a scavenger hunt, games, and taste tests, all at this annually anticipated, family-friendly interactive festival.  Our Director of Children’s Education, Jackie Kondel, along with Environmental Educator Lisa Martin, head up the team of RRA staff and volunteers to start the fires going and to heat up the hot cocoa.  And don’t forget, this is an outdoor event, so wear boots and dress for the weather. 

Thanks to underwriting by our partners at Investors Savings Bank, How Sweet It Is!  Maple Sugar Fest is free to all RRA members.  The admission for nonmembers is $5 per person or $20 per family.  Not a member?  Now’s the time to sign up!  For more information about How Sweet It Is! and other events and workshops at Reeves-Reed Arboretum, please visit our website at www.reeves-reedarboretum.org or call 908-273-8787 x 1515. Snow date is Sunday, March 2. Special thanks to Whole Foods Market, Milburn-Union, for their continued support of our annual Maple Sugar Fest.

Celebrating over 40 years as a historic public garden and education resource, Reeves-Reed Arboretum seeks to engage, educate and enrich the public through horticulture and environmental education, and the care and utilization of the gardens and estate.  Open 7days a week from dawn til dusk, the Arboretum (located at 165 Hobart Avenue in Summit, NJ) is listed on both the National and New Jersey State Historic Registers.
