MAPLE DAYS 2024
When: Monday, March 18 - Saturday, March 23, 2024 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM
Where: LeRay Mansion Historic District
Maple Days is an event held in late March--typically the prime "sugar" season in northern New York (although it is temperature dependent requiring cold nights and warm days). Among military installations, this is an event unique to Fort Drum, where Soldiers and their families have a chance to see how real maple syrup is produced--how maple trees are tapped, sap is collected, and the sap boiled to make syrup.
Fort Drum natural resources personnel will explain how sap is collected and processed. This is an outdoor event, so dress appropriately. There is no admission fee. Parking is on-site.
This is a new location, so the historic LeRay Mansion is also available to visit and learn about the history of the North Country.
