Cope Environmental Center, a non-profit offering various environmental education programs for school and community groups, is offering its Brownie Girl Scout maple syrup program on March 9th, 2013. Those who wish to participate need to go to register online through the Girl Scouts of Central Indiana registration portal or call Ellen Winking at 317-924-6834.
Program costs are $9.00 per Brownie Girl Scout and $5.00 per adult. The program includes a pancake breakfast using Cope Environmental Center’s maple syrup. Duration of the tour is approximately two hours. The pancake breakfast will be served after the program.
This tour will not only teach Girl Scouts about the science of maple syrup production, but also the historical importance of maple syrup. Scouts will see trees being tapped and then will have a chance to watch the evaporation process of the sap to syrup at the CEC Sap House. An interview with an Early American settler and a Native American is also included to inform the scouts of the history of maple syrup. The tour will finish with a pancake breakfast for all participants. Call today to reserve your spot.
