Maple Syrup

Sugar, Maple Sugar, Persons, Woody Plants, Trees Maple syrup time is just around the corner. Persons interested in economic development in the Copper Country should keep in mind the Maple Syrup Institute to be held in Powers. The scene pictured is a familiar one in a sugar bush in early spring. Roy Skog, specialist in Forestry, MSU and Bill Nara examine the contents of the plastic bag in the sugar bush at Nara's Bootjack. (The Nara maple syrup business is now owned by Leonard Gregorie of Lake Linden.) [The two men check to see how much sap has been gathered.]
