Episode 22: Maple Syrup and the Wood Wide Web

Season 1 Episode 23 | Posted on: April 2, 2021

Episode Description

Spring has sprung, and in eastern Canada this means maple syrup season! Ms. Lilly schools us on how trees are way more like animals than we ever imagined. The Vanier Sugar Shack is our bucket list destination where we learn all about the Indigenous and Francophone connections to maple syrup. Learn tips on how to tell exactly when sap becomes syrup during the cooking process, and reflect on what trees can teach us about embracing diversity. It’s all in Episode 22 of Outdoors with Lawrence Gunther – starting with facts about the “wood wide web.”
