MapleFest at the Yale Landscape Lab

MapleFest is an annual festival brings together the greater New Haven community to gather at the Yale Landscape Lab barn around one of New England’s great treats. Having tapped the maple trees across campus and boiled the sap down into syrup, the YLL team structures this event to be a sweet gateway into appreciating both the products of the landscape as well as the learning experiences they allow for. Complementary workshops and talks related to maple and ranging from plant physiology to climate change to cultural history help fill out the day.
