BEAVERCREEK — Anyone interested in learning how to become a GCP&T volunteer during the maple sugaring season can attend a training session 9 a.m. to noon, Monday, Jan. 22 at the Narrows Reserve Nature Center, 2575 Indian Ripple Road.

During volunteer training, participants will learn how to lead maple sugaring tours, collect maple sap and cook maple syrup during the sugar season. The program will include information needed to assist the naturalist during the 2018 maple sugaring season.

Training will be held indoors and outdoors, so participants should dress for the weather.
