Sponsor-A-Maple Tree

The Kettle Creek Environmental Education Center is once again promoting its “Sponsor-A-Maple Tree” program. Would you, your organization, family, company, etc. like to help Monroe County students by sponsoring one of our maple trees?  For $25, a tree can be sponsored which includes many benefits: receipt of a Certificate of Sponsorship, a map of the sugarbush showing the location of your tree, a pint of our own pure maple syrup and free admission for up to four people to our Annual Public Maple Sugaring Day on Saturday, March 4, 2017.  Sponsoring a maple tree makes a great birthday or Holiday gift.

 

This fundraising program, sponsored by Monroe County Conservation District’s Environmental Education Center, helps offset costs for the maple sugaring educational program that has benefited students throughout Monroe County for over 30 years.  The Center always tries to keep costs to the students affordable, but due to the overwhelming interest in our program the expenses have increased.  By participating in our “Sponsor-A- Maple Tree” program you can help offset these costs.
