  • Erv Cross: Making sugar Indian Way at Lac Courte Oreilles

    by Nick Vander Puy
    Reserve, Wisconsin (LCOTV)

    Erv Cross drills the maple tree with an old fashioned brace and places a handcarved cedar spigot in the hole. Right away the sap drips into the can.

    For the past several weeks Erv Cross has been supervising maple syrup making at the Lac Courte Oreilles school forest in northwestern Wisconsin. With help from the youth Cross built a wigwam and hung more than one-hundred fifty three pound cans from the maple trees.
