England is famous for fall's bright orange & reds from our Maple trees and for
spring's maple tapping to make maple syrup. Spring brings those warmer days and
cold nights to help the sugaring maples provide Maple Sugar Houses with the sap
to make into our wonderful New England Maple Syrup. Join us to enjoy one of Mother
Nature's finest treats first hand!

points toward winning prizes as they travel through the Valley. Along the way
you must seek answers to questions, gather objects, and artifacts as well as visit
each participating Inn and Maple Country Partner. Bring along your digital camera
for bonus photo ops!

Maple Madness March and scores the most points will win a
$200 gift certificate good toward a two night stay at any participating
Inn, and other goodies provided by the Inns and Maple Country Partners.
