Preparing for syrup
While activities at Downs Park have slowed, volunteers are getting ready for the spring's maple syrup-making demonstrations, which are popular with visitors young and old.
In past years, the park has sought donations of empty plastic milk and water jugs for sap collection. But "sap sucker" volunteers have noticed that sap collected in plastic milk jugs (even thoroughly cleaned jugs) tends to sour.
To avoid this problem, the park will accept only empty plastic water jugs. They can be dropped off at the park office between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. any day except Tuesday.
