About This Area
New home to our flagship Maple Syrup Education Program; the Oschmann Forest Conservation Area offers visitors a ‘sweet’ outdoor experience. With 1.2 km of trail featuring interpretive signage along the way, this site takes you through a diverse woodlot with Maple, Oak and even Butternut trees. Keep an eye out for the heritage sugar shack, which was used by the Oschmann family until the early 2000’s to collect and boil tree sap into delicious maple syrup. This forest was donated to SNC in 2017 by the Oschmann Family to maintain their natural legacy. Interpretive trail signage will guide you and your family through a tour of the forest and the production of maple syrup; in the spring, watch the sap flow through the blue collection lines on site.
