Step Up for Maples! Maple Monitoring Info Session

Event date and time
September 26, 2018 - 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM


Chances are, if you live in the North Country you're familiar with sugar maple trees. In the face of climate change, there is recent concern about how a warming and increasingly unpredictable climate will affect both sugar maple health and maple syrup production. In this info session at the Canton Free Library, we’ll introduce you to Nature Up North’s ongoing Monitor My Maple project, in which North Country residents record important seasonal observation about maple trees in towns and villages.

The session will include a short introduction to the project inside, followed by a simple demonstration across the street at Canton Park. No previous experience or scientific background necessary. Join us as we build our network of local residents monitoring tree health, and help us collect a wealth of information about our local environment! Participants will leave the session will all the tools necessary to help us collect important data this fall.

This free event is open to the public and co-sponsored by Nature Up North and the Canton Free Library. Youth under 14 must be accompanied by an adult. With questions or to rsvp contact Nature Up North Project Manager Emlyn Crocker at info@natureupnorth.org.
