Youth and Scout Maple Sugarin’ Days

Scouts, Girl Scouts, 4H groups, and youth organizations of all kinds are invited to a sweet adventure at Riveredge Nature Center! This 1.5-hour program is designed for young people to delve into the fascinating world of maple syrup production. Participants will witness the enchanting process from tapping maple trees to the final amber product during a naturalist-guided hiking tour of the Riveredge sugarbush.

Engage in hands-on activities such as identifying maples, tapping trees, and experiencing the magic of sap turning to syrup. Our knowledgeable guides will share the history and science behind maple sugaring, making this experience both educational and delicious. Immerse yourselves in the sights, sounds, and tastes of this traditional practice, fostering a deeper appreciation for nature and its sweet bounty. Take part in a time-honored Riveredge tradition- a pancake & pickle, topped with maple syrup produced by the trees you’ve just visited. Don’t miss out on this sticky, sweet adventure that promises to leave everyone with a lasting, maple-flavored memory!

Earth Day Summit


Earth Day Summit

Witnessing changes to our environment can elicit feelings dubbed “eco-anxiety” by psychologists. Information overload and uncertainty about the future may give way to a scarcity mindset and one may find it a challenge to enjoy the present.

However, it doesn’t need to be that way! Let’s answer that question, “What can I do?” Join in Riveredge’s Earth Day Summit to celebrate some incredible nature-based initiatives to spark inspiration and feed optimism. You will find support through experiential education-based community building, and empower yourself and your organization by taking part in an action-planning workshop to kickstart your sustainability goals.
