    Each year, the Green Mountain Audubon Center in Huntington, Vermont hosts community-wide Sugar on Snow parties to celebrate the start to spring and to promote our sustainable and bird friendly maple sugaring program. During the event we offer free maple education programs to the public and demonstrate the traditional sap collection by bucket and wood-fired maple syrup boiling techniques. Our Teacher-Naturalists lead tours of the sugarbush and sugarhouse to explain the process of turning sap into syrup; while our biologists from our Forest Bird Initiative discuss the management practices we have in place to foster breeding bird populations in our sugarbush. Audubon’s Sugar on Snow parties are a beloved tradition for people of all ages and backgrounds. This year, on April 2nd and 3rd we will host close to 1,000 guests on our property who will enjoy light refreshments, hot drinks and tasty syrup boiled on site. These events raise funds to support our sustainable sugaring operation, as well as our year-round environmental education programs for people of all ages. The events are free, sweet treats are for sale.
