Presentations

∫ A Maple Summit at the Schoharie River Center: Schoharie River Center, 2025 Burtonville Road Esperance. The Schoharie River Center invites the public to a Maple Summit: a presentation of stories, food traditions, and techniques to celebrate the maple syrup season. The program will take place on Sunday from 3 to 5 p.m. at the David Remling Science Center of the Schoharie River Center, 2025 Burtonville Road, Esperance (Town of Charleston, Montgomery County).

The making of maple syrup is a Native American innovation that was adopted by European groups when they colonized North America. The Maple Summit will explore the tradition’s origins through the narratives and story-telling of Mohawk teacher and storyteller, Kay Olan, and through the experiences and stories of area maple producers. Food traditions and sugar-making techniques are an important part of the season. Participants will have an opportunity to sample different maple products. The program is supported by a grant from the New York State Council on the Arts, with the support of Andrew M. Cuomo, and the New York State Legislature.
