Maple Syrup Volunteers

Maple_Syrup_Volunteer.jpgWe​ are looking for a few "sweet" volunteers to help with our maple syrup program at the Tiffin Centre for Conservation in Utopia (between Angus and Barrie). 

Each year, we tap 500 maple trees, collect the sap, and boil down to make maple syrup. Between the end of February and beginning of April, thousands of students come to the Tiffin Centre to learn about how maple syrup is made. The season culminates with the Spring Tonic Maple Syrup Festival on the first weekend of April. 

  • Volunteers help collect the sap, and produce and package the syrup. We have a "sap collection gator" for collection, and then a toasty sugar shack for production. 

  • Volunteers are needed throughout March, both duri​ng the week and on Saturdays, from 7:30 am to 3:30 pm​ daily. You can volunteer for a minium block of 2 hours​.

This is a great opportunity for someone wanting to learn how to make syrup on their property, or just to take part in a great Canadian tradition!

​Thanks to all our volunteers their ongoing support of our community tree planting program! Special thanks to the landowners that welcomed us to their property for the plants - together we are working to restore the health of our rivers and streams. 

Thanks also to The UPS Foundation and to TD Friends of the Environment for their generous support of NVCA's community tree planting program.
