Adopt a Bucket

Beaver Creek Reserve, Wise Nature Center, S1 Cty Road K, Fall Creek, WI 54742
Join us for the first tapping of the season! We will kick off the maple syrup season with the Reserve's annual Adopt-A-Bucket program. Families, scout troops, and youth groups are welcome to decorate a bucket with their favorite design to be hung in the Reserve's sugar bush. Decorators will have their picture taken with their bucket(s) before heading to the sugar bush to meet the sapmeister.
In the sugar bush you will assist in tapping a maple tree and hang your bucket to catch sap. Upon returning to the Nature Center you will receive sweet reward of Mother Nature, a maple syrup sundae-all this plus a jar of maple syrup to take home. Don't miss out this fun and educational opportunity.
*Registration note: there is a limit of five participants per bucket. Groups with more than five in their party will need to purchase buckets according to group size.
*Registration and full payment required by Mar. 12, 2014
