The sap's rising! Join us for our annual maple-tapping festival, Maple Sugaring Days. Naturalists will demonstrate how to tap a maple tree. Try drilling and setting your own tap. Simmer sap over an open fire and watch as it thickens to syrup. Come on a Sugarin' Time hike and learn how to tell maples from other hardwood trees. Plus, sample local syrup inside Creek Bend Nature Center. Maple Sugaring Days are FREE and fun for individuals, families, scouts and/or other groups. Don't miss this annual rite of spring!
