 Friends and colleagues of the late Bruce Selleck are raising funds to memorialize the Canton native, longtime Colgate professor and lifelong upstate New Yorker by creating a new educational resource – a working maple sugaring operation – at Rogers Environmental Education Center in Sherburne, N.Y.

Thanks to generous support from over a hundred individuals and organizations, phase one of the Selleck Sugaring Project will begin during the 2019 maple sugar season. This living laboratory will teach the science and craft of maple sugaring, where visitors will observe and participate in the sugaring process.

The Selleck Sugaring Project will have its official launch during the ‘Inaugural Tree Tapping Ceremony’ on September 30 at 1:30 pm, the day when Bruce Selleck would have celebrated his 69th birthday.

Anyone interested in supporting the Selleck Sugaring Project or attending the Inaugural Tree Tapping Ceremony should call 607-674-4733.

Rogers Environmental Education Center is located at 2721 State Route 80.
