Greene County News



BEAVERCREEK — Groups of 10 or more can enjoy a private tour of the Sugar Bush Trail at the Narrows Reserve, Sperling Lane Entrance, Beavercreek, with its lingering scent of sweet maple syrup on a hike led by Greene County Parks & Trails naturalists and volunteers.

Tours can be arranged on weekdays between Feb. 21 and March 9 with the 90-minute hikes completed by 4 p.m. The tour program is ideal for school, scout and civic organizations. However, any group of ten or more can schedule a private tour.

The tours will highlight how sap is formed and is transformed into syrup using both Native American and modern techniques. The program meets school proficiency standards.

Samples of warm maple syrup will be offered at the end of the tour.

Cost is $4 per person (Greene County resident) and $5 per person (non-resident).

To schedule a private tour or for more information, call Greene County Parks & Trails Chief Naturalist Cris Barnett at 937-562-6474 or email cbarnett@co.greene.oh.us.
