Maple syrup program slated for Feb. 20

FLORENCE, Wis. — An international program on maple syrup techniques will be held from 6-8 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 20, in the lower level conference room of the Florence Natural Resource and Wild Rivers Interpretive Center, located on the corner of U.S. 2 and Hwy. 101/70 in Florence.
    The panel of experts will be Fred Hedmark and Ernie Dagostino.
    Hedmark and Dagostino are maple syrup producers of varying production, so there will have all levels of production present from small to very big. Both men have been making maple syrup their entire life and are vastly knowledgeable in the production of maple syrup
    Hedmark’s Maple Ridge, which is a maple supplies dealer, will also have maple equipment and supplies on display and for sale. This program should be of interest to those considering making maple syrup, those who want to compare experience and techniques and to those curious about the process.
    The Environmental Stewardship Program Series is put on by the Friends of the Wild Rivers Interpretive Center and are open to the public, free of charge.
