Did you know that sap from the bigleaf maple tree, native to the Pacific Northwest, can be made into syrup similar to sugar maple syrup from the Eastern United States? Join Eliza Nelson from the Oregon Maple Project to learn about the history, science, process, and best practices for maple sugaring in the PNW. Take a guided walk on Arboretum trails to visit bigleaf maples that have been tapped, as well as watch a tree tapping demonstration. The program will conclude with a maple syrup tasting.

Class size is limited and pre-registration is required.

About the instructor: Eliza Nelson’s first taste of sugaring happened in Vershire, Vermont, where she attended high school. After moving West and teaching for two decades at the Arbor School in Tualatin, Oregon, Eliza launched the Oregon Maple Project in 2020. Now her love of maple sugaring continues through education, demonstration, and production.
