Tappin’ the sap

-A A +A

Misty Kinman’s Wolf Scout Den attended the Sugar Camp Feb. 27, at Middleton-Mills Park in Northern Kentucky. Field Programs on Fowler Creek proprietor Mike Strohm operates the working sugar camp, demonstrating the art and science of making maple sugar. He portrays American pioneer settler Elrod Tapper and shows visitors what it was like living in the mid-1800s. A second camp was set up nearby offering participants the opportunity to help process sap into hard sugar, using hot rocks and wooden bowls, as Shawnee and Iroquois Indians would have done in the 1700s.

Nine wolf scouts and their parents attended the camp. Kinman said the event was very informative and interactive, and she would highly recommend it for others to attend next year.
