Wednesday Night’s Show: Maple Sugaring with Mike Porter

CFA-On-The-Air: From the Forest
Wednesdays 6PM – 7PM

On Wednesday night’s show (February 11th), From the Forest will be interviewing veteran maple producer Mike Porter of Margaretville. Even before Mike Porter became Catskill Forest Association’s Board President, he frequently visited From the Forest to talk about not only maple sugaring, but log-home building, migratory birds, among other “foresty” topics. Mike is always fun to talk to, especially about his passion for one of the Catskill’s most well-known tradition: maple sugaring. Tune in at 91.3 FM or stream online @ to learn more.

Getting ready for negative temperatures; that’s what. It’s supposed to go down below -5° F tonight. Time to crank up the woodstove and look for some oak pieces in the pile that’ll burn all night.

May the forest be with you,
Ryan Trapani
Education Forester
