Join Brian Chabot, professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, on a visit to the Arnot Research Forest to learn about making maple syrup.

In the early history of this country, Native Americans made it by putting hot rocks into maple sap collected in hollowed-out logs.

Later, iron pots brought by the colonists made it easier to boil the sap and dramatically increased the speed and efficiency of the syrup-making process.

In recent years, large-scale maple-syrup production advanced even further.
