[ARCHIVED] Bike-Walk Committee's Maple Syrup Public Trek: 2/19 @ 1 pm

The South Hadley Bike-Walk Committee invites the public on a very different guided trek for all age groups at Stone Silo Maple Syrup Farm and a brief “look-see” at the adjacent LeBlanc Conservation Area on Sunday, February 19th at 1 pm.

 Proprietor Maurice LaFlamme will lead the public on a very short and relatively flat walk to the maple trees at the back of his property to see how the tree sap is collected to be later transformed into maple syrup.  This is a rare chance to also safely view the adjacent, small LeBlanc Conservation Area which is a protected area for wetland and wildlife habitat and refuge.  The conservation area does not contain trails and is intentionally left overgrown and unnavigable. 

Meet at 12:45 pm on the Stone Silo Maple Syrup property at 355 N. Main Street, South Hadley.  Due to unsafe parking conditions on N. Main St, park on the nearby, opposite side streets of Valley View Dr. and Pheasant Run Rd.  Wear weather-appropriate clothing and safe, waterproof footwear, and bring water.  

Post-trek, please join BWC members and Mr. LaFlamme for light refreshments and socializing!  

Non-enjoyable or hazardous inclement weather/conditions will force a cancellation.
