The mission of HNC is to utilize the natural world as a classroom in order to provide practical, integrated learning opportunities, foster environmental awareness, and promote the concept of global stewardship for life-long learners.
So join us on Saturday, March 22nd from 11am-3pm for our annual Maple Sugar Open House! Take a walk with us to tap a maple tree. Then stop by the evaporator to learn how the sap turns into syrup. Try and buy maple syrup, cookies, ice cream and candy! There will also be activities for kids!
Then bring the family over for our annual pancake breakfast fundraiser on Sunday, March 30th from 10am-2pm. The cost is $7.50 per person ($6.00 for members!!) and includes all the pancakes you can eat served with our own maple syrup!
