The Oregon Park District has joined forces with Lorado Taft Campus to offer a new educational program for 3rd-8th graders.

Maple Sugar Mayhem will occur on Monday, Feb. 25 from 4-5 p.m.

The fee is $8 for residents and $10 for non-residents.

“Has your child ever wonder about the science behind creating maple syrup?,” asked Tina Ketter, superintendent of recreation. “The talented staff at Taft Campus is ready to share their knowledge. Students will learn about the sap produced by maple trees, how to identify trees in the winter, how to tap a tree and maple syrup production.”

Everyone will meet at Taft Campus, Ketter said.

Register at Nash Recreation Center, 304 S. 5th Street, Oregon or call 815-732-3101. The deadline to register is Feb. 18.
