For $20, Minneapolis’ residents will get a kit that can be used to tap sap from any privately owned tree in the maple family (including box elders). Are you a repeat Tapper with your own kit? Register to participate in the boil for only $10! Register here
We have set aside two Saturdays for sap boils outdoors at MLK Park, 4055 Nicollet, at which participants and other curious residents can watch the transformation of the watery liquid into a concentration of sweet syrup. The all-day boil-downs on March 13th and/or March 20th are an opportunity to bond with other neighborhood residents and learn more about how sap is turned into syrup. Depending on exactly what day the sap runs, we will host boils on one, or both, of these dates!
Register and pick up a Tree Tapping Kit from the front desk of MLK Park. (Note, trees must be larger than 10 inches in diameter). Kit includes spline(s), tubing, 5 gallon food grade collection bucket, and how-to instructions. Participants will be able to sign up for a shift of syrup making, and will get to take a jar of syrup home with them too! A program of the Kingfield Neighborhood Association and MLK Park.
Upon registration for this program, participants agree to maintain social distance (6 feet) at all times and adhere to the current Minnesota state face covering mandate. (Face covering exceptions may apply to certain MPRB activities.) Failure to comply will result in removal from the program.
