Maple Event March 15 at NYPA
The New York Power Authority (NYPA) and Mine Kill State Park will host a free backyard maple sugaring event on Saturday, March 15, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., at NYPA’s Blenheim-Gilboa visitors center.
Join the fun and learn how to choose and tap the proper tree, collect the sap and turn it into maple syrup at home. One lucky visitor will win an eight-ounce jar of genuine Catskill maple syrup.
Admission and parking are always free, but reservations are required. Call 518 827-8690 for reservations or more information.
While you’re there, enjoy the visitors center with its informative, interactive exhibits on electricity and the Blenheim-Gilboa Pumped Storage Power Plant. The center, open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., is located on State Route 30, about 17 miles south of Middleburgh and five miles north of Grand Gorge.
