Learn backyard sugarin’

GREENVILLE — Just in time for the upcoming maple sugaring season, join Darke County Parks to learn a new woodland skill.

At Shawnee Prairie on Saturday at 10 a.m., participants will learn how to tap their own maples, how and when to collect the sap, and finally, how to go about turning that sap into maple goodness, Demonstrations and hands-on experience will ensure that by the end of the program, everyone will have the skills needed to produce their very own maple syrup.

“Please remember to dress for the weather and call ahead to preregister for this free program,” said organizers.
