BEAVERCREEK — Anyone interested in learning how to tap a sugar maple tree to create maple syrup can learn by volunteering with Greene County Parks & Trails (GCP&T) at its Narrows Reserve Sugar Camp in Beavercreek.

Potential volunteers are invited to attend as a guest at one of GCP&T volunteer training sessions from 9 a.m. to noon, Monday, Feb. 13, at the Narrows Reserve Nature Center, 2575 Indian Ripple Rd.

Participants need to dress for the weather.
