Then spend time with Hickory in his abode and see how sap water was collected and made into hard sugar, using heated stones and wooden bowls, as Shawnee Indians would have done.

Meet at Shelterhouse 2. Steve Trauger, KCP&R's Programs Coordinator (er, Elrod Tapper) will be your guide into the 'wilds' of Middleton-Mills Park.
