CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. – The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) Cape Girardeau Conservation Nature Center will host "Maple Sugaring" Saturday, Feb. 13, from 1-4 p.m. This program is all about the history, equipment and process of making maple syrup and sugar.
"This event is self-guided and partially outdoors so that we can show the entire process of backyard sugaring," said Angela Pierce, a naturalist at the Nature Center. Pierce said maple sugaring has a long history in America, with earliest records of Indians using syrup for barter in the 1600s.
