Proctor Maple Research Center
The Proctor Maple Research Center is a Field Research Station of the Department of Plant Biology in the College of Agriculture & Life Sciences at the University of Vermont. Students actually take semester classes on sugaring at UVM and work in the sugarbush. How cool is that?
The Proctor Maple Research Center was established in 1946 with the donation of the former Harvey Farm in Underhill Center, Vermont, to the University of Vermont by Governor Mortimer Proctor. Research has centered on the sugar maple tree (Acer saccharum Marsh.) and its products--sap and syrup.
You may visit the center or donate to help fund maple research.
