Maple Syrup and Trees

March means maple syrup madness at Warner! We will learn about the process of making the tasty treat and maple syruping history. We'll also hike through our sugar bush, do a taste test, and make a craft. Open to any scout troop. Register in advance. $7/child.

Saturday May 9, 2015, 10 a.m.-12 p.m.

Adventure out onto Warner's trails using GPS units in search of a geocache! First, learn about geocaching, and how to use a GPS unit. Make an item to trade at a cache. Open to any scout troop. Junior Girl Scouts can earn their Geocacher badge. Register in advance. $7/child.
