The Science of Maple Syrup with Heather Fraser

March in New Brunswick is all about one thing – maple syrup. The sap is running, the sugar shacks are open, and the pancakes are stacking up. But behind all the yummy fun we civilians enjoy, there’s some serious business at play – and some serious science, too!

Heather Fraser spent 30 years working for the City of Moncton, including launching the city’s maple syrup production, the first municipally-operated sugar bush in Canada. Since retiring from that position, she’s launched her own business, Explore Nature’s Bounty, which works to connect people with the world around us all year round.

But her passion for maple syrup couldn’t be stopped. She joins us on the podcast to share a snippet of what you’ll learn if you join her on a guided tour this season.
