CRCA Maple Madness First Nations Display
March 24 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 10:00am on Saturday, repeating until March 31, 2018
For centuries, the people living in this part of the continent have taken advantage of the sweet bounty offered by the mighty stands of sugar maple trees that are in abundance. Residents of Kingston and surrounding area have a unique opportunity to learn how First Nations communities harvested and used sweet water to make maple syrup and maple sugar.
The special First Nations Displays will take place each Saturday during the Cataraqui Region Conservation Authority’s Maple Madness program at the Little Cataraqui Creek Conservation Area: March 10, 17, 24 and March 30, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The informative displays will be led by Paul Carl, a leading member of Kingston’s Aboriginal community, who is also part of the Queen’s University Aboriginal Teacher Education Program.

The Little Cataraqui Creek Conservation Area is located on Division Street just two km north of Highway 401. Entry fees during Maple Madness are $15 per vehicle.
