The Lake George Land Conservancy is kicking off a Living Land Series with a talk on maple sugaring, on Wednesday, June 28 at 5:30 pm.
Local Bolton resident Sam Caldwell of Bixby’s Best will explain the art of maple sugaring and the creation of traditional Adirondack maple syrup.
The weekly presentations – held Wednesday evenings (except for July 5) from June 28th through August 16th in the LGLC’s Bolton Landing office – are free and open to the public, although registration is strongly recommended as seating is limited.
New this year, attendees will be given a “Talk Ticket” that can be used that evening only at Lakeside Lodge and Grille to donate 10% to the LGLC. Attendees can also add their name to a drawing to win a Lakeside Lodge and Grille gift certificate.
Following the maple sugaring talk, other presentations include “Wild Wolves” with Steve Hall of the Adirondack Wildlife Refuge; “Meet the Raptors of the Adirondacks” with Nancy Kimball; “Beekeeping and Honeymaking” with Tom Wells, owner of Pleasant Valley Apiaries; “The Battle of Lake George” historical talk with author and historian William Griffith; “Adirondack Hunting Traditions” with Dan Ladd; and “Timber Rattlesnakes” with Dr. Bill Brown, Vertebrate Zoologist and Herpetologist.
