Join staff from the MacKenzie Center near Poynette to chat about new programs, outdoor opportunities for families and their maple syrup program at noon on Tuesday, March 18.

During March and April the MacKenzie Center taps about 100 trees and teaches more than 1,200 students how to make maple syrup. People can join this online chat to learn more about the center and what it offers.

- How is maple syrup made? How does the weather effect syrup production? A DNR forester will answer any technical maple syrup questions.

- Why do turkey vultures have bald heads? How much does a wolf eat in a week? This is an opportunity to ask a wildlife technician about any of the more than 15 species of native Wisconsin wildlife living at MacKenzie.

- What activities can people participate in at the MacKenzie Center? There are trails, museums, and a native wildlife area on site to explore at MacKenzie. Ask center educators about the environmental education and outdoors skills programs we have to offer.

You can sign up for a reminder for the chat in the box below.
