We’re giving you some fun coloring activities! Our next coloring page theme is common Ohio trees. Can you name what trees we’re featuring just by looking at them?
Today’s tree is a sweet favorite of many people. It’s none other than the sugar maple! If the name isn’t a clue, sugar maples (Acer saccharum) are the trees that give us maple sugar to make maple syrup. Native Americans also created a tea from the inner bark of maple sugar trees that they used as a cough remedy.
Tapping maple trees has a narrow time frame in Hamilton County, anywhere from two to eight weeks. Great Parks celebrates maple tapping every year during Maple Sugar Days.
