Maple Tree Tapping

The Vanier Museopark is pleased to bring back the traditions of maple syrup production in its urban sugar shack, located less than 5 minutes away from downtown Ottawa!


Join us for this essential part of maple syrup production: it’s an engaging event for families and the Vanier community. Our volunteer maple syrup producers will be proud to share their knowledge and passion with you! This activity is open to everyone, so why not give it a try?
