During the events, those participating have tapped the trees and learned about the sugaring process.

According to the Maple Syrup Producers Association of Connecticut, to make pure maple syrup people must collect sap from sugar maple trees and boil and evaporate it until it reaches the proper density for syrup.

Steps include determining when to tap the trees, identifying the trees to tap, collecting the sap and processing it and then filtering, grading and packing the syrup.

The Watershed Institute is located at 31 Titusville Road, Pennington.
