Details:
March means Maple Syrup! As winter comes to a close and the sun\'s rays become warmer, the trees begin to awaken for the coming growing season, causing the sap to rise in our sugar maple grove. Come to Fenner Nature Center and help us celebrate this uniquely North American tradition. We will demonstrate how the sap has been collected and made into delightfully sweet syrup throughout the ages. Warm up in the Visitor Center with hot chocolate and sample some maple syrup and maple sugar, before browsing the local artisans\' booths. Teachers, remember to bring your classrooms out for our Maple Syrup Tours during the three weeks prior to the festival. Call us to register your class at (517) 483-4224.
