It’s Maple Sugaring Time in the Adirondacks! Join Ivy Gocker, Library Director of the Adirondack Experience, and Matt Thomas, an independent maple syrup historian, as they talk about the history and material culture of maple sugaring in the Adirondack Region: the process, how it was done in the past, and the story of the Horse Shoe Forestry Company near Tupper Lake, which was once the largest syrup production operation in the world.
