  • : Food Events - Mar 27 - Grand Lake Stream - Backyard Boildown and Pancake Brunch - Grand Lake Stream School Building - Upcoming Washington County Maine Events
    In late March, as the days grow slightly longer, sap pushes skyward from the roots to give lifeblood to the upper reaches of the forest. Nature's sweetest treat of all comes from every New Englander's favorite springtime tree: The Sugar Maple. The long history of tapping Maple trees has been crafted into a rite of passage for all those awakening from their winter slumbers to enjoy! Join the Downeast Lakes Land Trust as we celebrate Maine Maple Sunday with a traditional backyard boildown, in Grand Lake Stream. Maine Maple Sunday is a statewide celebration of all things maple! Learn all about the transformation from sap to syrup and the cultural significance of this local pastime. As the syrup finishes off outside, we will head inside the Grand Lake Stream School Building for a Pancake Brunch, putting our finished product to good use. For more info please contact the Downeast Lakes Land Trust at (207) 796-2100 or email crbrown@downeastlakes.org. Event is on Sunday, Mar. 27 at 12 p.m.
