Maple Sugaring Days
March 4, 12:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
It’s maple sugaring time! Come to Creek Bend Nature Center to explore the art, science, and folklore of the “sugar bush,” or maple grove. You’ll learn how to identify and tap a maple tree, and you can try your hand at drilling and setting a tap. We’ll simmer sap over an open fire and watch as it thickens to syrup. Relax with a mug of steaming hot cocoa, a donut or a cookie in the Maple Cafe. After a day of fun, purchase some of your own locally-sourced maple syrup to take home, while supplies last. (Cash or check only, please.)
