Maple Sugaring Saturday: Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary
Experience the age-old tradition of maple sugaring. The warm days of late winter awaken the flow of sap in the maples resulting in sweet-smelling, billowing clouds of steam rising from the sugarhouse.

Great TimeWe took our grandaughter Sunday for this tour. The only problem we had was I forgot that this is snow and mud season. I would suggest wearing boots as well as bring a extra pair of shoes. Also take advantage of checking out 'The Barn'. Enjoy the Sap Hot Dogs.
FantasticMy entire family including my 2.5 year old enjoyed this activity, things were explained so that even he could understand what was happening. I was very impressed with the knowlege of the guide and the grounds were beautiful. The walk was short enough that I could carry my infant the whole way.
