Celebrate Maine Maple Sunday at UMaine

The Page Farm and Home Museum at the University of Maine invites the public to its annual Maine Maple Sunday celebration 1–3 p.m. March 23.

Festivities begin with a video titled “The Maple Sugaring Story” at the farm and museum on Munson Road. Children in grades K–5 will be invited to take part in learning activities and games and to listen to stories about one of Maine’s oldest traditions and seasonal business enterprises.

Guests are invited to visit UMaine’s Thomas J. Corcoran Sugar House on Lucy Thompson Road, off College Avenue Extension. Take a guided walking tour of the sugar bush and sugar house, where sap is simmered into syrup. Attendees will be offered a sample of syrup from the evaporator.

Space is limited; preregistration is required. Cost is $4. For more information, to register, or to request a disability accommodation, call 207.581.4100. Children must be chaperoned by an adult with transportation.
