Help Us Make Maple Syrup!

Maple sap needs YOU to become maple syrup! Cold Nights And Warming Rays Bring Running Sap for Maple Syrup Days. Have you ever wanted to learn how maple syrup is made?  Perhaps you already know and want to teach others.  Either way, we could use your help this maple sugar season.

Sap is a fickle thing, running fast for a few days then slowing for while and always weather dependent.  Our expert volunteers, who tap and monitor the maple trees, give us up-to-the-minute reports on when we can expect to be boiling sap.  So are you ready to sign up to help?  Here is what you need to do to be added to the list of potential sap boilers.

1) Call 937-548-0165 or email
2) When we have enough sap to boil, we will call you with the dates/times
3) On your scheduled day, meet the Shawnee Prairie Sugar Shack and make maple syrup!
*You will be called each time we have sap to boil unless you tell us to take you off of the list*

Thank you for your interest in volunteering and we hope to see you soon!
