Mighty Acorns: Magic Maple Syrup

Do you like maple syrup on your pancakes? Maybe you like it better on french toast! Maple syrup is a true sweet treat of nature! Where does maple syrup come from? What happens to get it from tree to pancake? There is a lot that happens to make this magical sweet syrup. Come discover more about the New England tradition of maple sugaring. We’ll taste some local maple syrup, go on a hike in search of maple trees, and make a sugar shack craft!

All Mighty Acorns Club programs are on the first Friday of the month from 10:00AM - 11:30AM. Programs begin in October and end in May, and are geared for ages 3 - 5.

Mighty Acorns Club will happen rain or shine! Make sure you and your mighty acorn(s) are ready for whatever the weather has in store for us! If there are unsafe weather conditions (e.g. thunder/lightning, high winds, extreme cold, etc.), we will have an alternative indoor activity. If there is hazardous weather for traveling, The Nature Museum’s closure due to weather follows the decision of Grafton Elementary School. Please check local listings for Grafton Elementary School to see if they’re closed.
