​Don’t miss our celebration of spring! Learn how to tap a maple tree and try it yourself. Watch sap simmer over an open fire as it thickens to syrup. Join us on a “Sugarin’ Time” hike to learn how to distinguish maples from other trees. Sample pure, local syrup. Plus, check-out interactive exhibits inside Creek Bend Nature Center. Bring the whole family for this fun, FREE program. Make this your spring tradition!
