Wisconsin is one of the largest producers of maple syrup in the United States, made mostly in the central and northern counties where sugar maples are found. Other trees can be tapped here in southern Wisconsin to make syrup, the most common of which is the Box Elder. Dave Bendlin will guide you through the steps of tapping trees, collecting their sap and cooking the sap down into syrup. Bring a clean 1 gallon plastic milk or water jug. Registration is required by February 21.
