If you've ever wondered what it is like to see how authentic maple syrup is made, this weekend a Macon County organization has your answers.
The Rock Springs Nature Center at the Macon County Conservation District is hosting a maple syrup making demonstration. The Center's Richie Wolf says this is the time of year when maple trees are producing their sap, so it's an ideal time to tap into that resource.
According to Wolf, the sap is much like the blood of the tree. The taste of authentic maple syrup is much, much different from your typical maple syrup you'd find at the grocery store.
This Saturday is the only time the Rock Spring's Nature Center will host the demonstration. The event is free but Wolf says they are asking for RSVPs at maconcountyconservation.org.
The sessions are one hour at 11 am, noon and 1 pm.
