The Stockton Maple Project continuously offers educational workshops to members of our local community and to educators in P-12 schools. Our workshops incorporate many variations and combinations of these three main topics, including science, sustainability, and reciprocity (i.e. a Native American and ecological concept focused on returning resources to the environment after or before a harvest).
Our workshops take place on the Stockton University campus, in various tapping hubs and community events such as the Batsto Village Country Living Fair, and by arrangement with local educators in schools. This page also links to materials from maple-rich regions that educators will find useful.
Our education initiative is led by Stockton Alumna in Environmental Science Debra A. Sommers.
