Maple Tree Tapping

Where: Echo Hill Playground, 42 Lilac Drive, Flemington
Have you gone to the Echo Hill Maple Sugaring program in March and wondered how exactly they tap the trees, or where the Echo Hill sugar bush is? Well, here’s your chance to find out! Attendees will meet at the playground and walk to the sugar bush (about five to ten minutes). Then, Recreation Leader Patrick Eckard will demonstrate how to tap a maple tree and participants will collectively tap about 30 trees. Pre-registration required. Cost is $3 per person. Adults and children ages 5 and up are welcome.
Ice Harvesting at Howell Farm
When: Saturday, January 26 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Where: Howell Living History Farm, 70 Woodens Lane, Hopewell Township
Work with farmers on the frozen pond, to help score, cut, and float ice the way it was done in the early 1900s. If there’s no ice on the pond, you’ll work with commercial ice, just as farmers did when a mild winter meant that local ice wasn’t available to harvest.
There will also be lunch fare available for sale in the visitor center, including homemade soups, sandwiches, casseroles and desserts!
Winter Festival Canal and River Walk
When: Sunday, January 27 from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Where: Lambertville Station Inn, 11 Bridge Street, Lambertville
Explore two historic Canals and cross over the Delaware River on this scenic and informative 2-mile, guided walking tour. See the lift lock and the outlet lock on New Jersey’s D&R Canal and learn how canal boats crossed the river from New Hope to Lambertville. Enjoy the river vistas while crossing the bridge to Pennsylvania, and then follow the Delaware Canal towpath south to Lock 11 and its Locktender’s House, where hot chocolate and cookies will be waiting.
Meet at the railroad car behind the Lambertville Station Restaurant.
