This class is part of the VIC's Maple Sugaring Program. The Paul Smith’s College VIC is collaborating with Cornell Maple to expand maple syrup and sugaring opportunities in the region. The goals of the project are to train local producers, promote further growth in the industry, and provide maple syrup production information and education opportunities for the general public.
