Maple Sugarbush Festival and Pancake Breakfast

Saturday, March 7, 2015 to Sunday, March 8, 2015

Cost: $4 – $12

To taste pure maple syrup is to taste a product born of the pure essence of nature. Or as American naturalist and essayist John Burroughs describes this maple magic, “. . . it has a wild delicacy of flavor that no other sweet can match.”

Join us for our 37th annual celebration of the maple sugar harvest from the trees of the preserve! Visitors of all ages will be guided through the woods to observe how sap becomes the pure maple syrup that we all love to pour over pancakes. Each visitor is served a hearty breakfast that includes sausage, all you can eat pancakes and a beverage. Local talent will be on hand to provide musical entertainment during the festivities.

You and your family will have an opportunity to sample some of our home grown maple syrup from Wesselman Woods Nature Preserve during the event.

We welcome you to join us for this local tradition of discovery and fun in the Wesselman Woods Nature Preserve!
