Maple Summit


The Schoharie River Center invites the public to a Maple Summit: a presentation of stories, food traditions, and techniques to celebrate the maple syrup season.  


The program will take place on Sunday, April 7, 2019 from 3:00 – 5:00 p.m. at the David Remling Science Center of the Schoharie River Center, 2025 Burtonville Road, Esperance.


The making of maple syrup is a Native American innovation that was adopted by European groups when they colonized North America.   The Maple Summit will explore the tradition’s origins through the narratives and story-telling of Mohawk teacher and storyteller, Kay Olan, and through the experiences and stories of area maple producers.   Food traditions and sugar-making techniques are an important part of the season.  Participants will have an opportunity to sample different maple products.  


The program is supported by a grant from the New York State Council on the Arts, with the support of Andrew M. Cuomo, and the New York State Legislature.
