Happy Maple Syrup Day!!

Greetings from up north!

Today, I was able to visit the Forest History Center in Grand Rapids, MN to learn all about maple syrup…since it is Maple Syrup Day 🙂 Here I got to learn about all of Minnesota’s forests through guided tours of a 1900s era logging camp. I saw how the men lived and worked right on site! As an added bonus, in honor of Maple Syrup Day, I also learned about the history and science of maple syrup, and got to try out some homemade ice-cream with maple syrup topping and of course, maple syrup popcorn!

This is the first year the center is open during the winter, however, they plan to be open all year round to provide great hands-on learning experiences and exploration in the north woods.

Come and visit if you’re around town! Enjoy the pictures.
