It smells like springtime at Five Rivers!

Family Fun: MAPLE SUGAR OPEN HOUSES
Join us for an introduction to maple sugaring, from sap to syrup. You’ll get to twirl a brace drill, pound a spile, inspect the sap flow in our sugarbush, enjoy the aroma of sap boiling down in our evaporator and take the maple taste test. A local maple producer will be on site to answer questions and offer a variety of maple products for sale. Organized groups are welcome but are asked to call Five Rivers at 518-475-0291 to register.
SAVE THE DATE…
Thursdays, March 31 through June 16, from 4:30 to 5:30 PM
Family Fun: OUTDOORS after SCHOOL
Join us after school to get some fresh air, stretch your legs, and have fun outdoors. We’ll meet briefly indoors, then head outside for an adventure. Each week will have a different theme and will include time to explore. Come for as many sessions as you’d like, and dress for outdoor activity. For children in grades K-5 and their caregivers.
