It's a magical time of year when the weather is just right: warmer days, chilly nights and the sap begins to flow in the sugar maples. There is nothing quite like the taste of fresh maple syrup from New York State. Maple sugaring activities look a bit different than years past, but much planning has gone in to make these events safe for all to enjoy. Be sure to check directly with each organization for the latest event information and to view COVID-19 operating guidelines.
