Ever wonder how maple syrup is made? From steel buckets and oxen-drawn wagons to the advanced technology used today, maple syrup production has changed considerably over time. But one thing has remained constant – maple trees and their sweet sap. Join Steve to learn about the history, production, and biology of maple sugaring. He'll also discuss the maples found in the collections of the U.S. Botanic Garden and the U.S. National Arboretum.
