Sugarin' Off Pancake Breakfast returns to River Bend!
Sunday, March 3, 7, & 10 - 9am to noon
$8 adults, $4 children, and free for children under 3
After an All You Can Eat pancake breakfast, our naturalist volunteers will lead visitors of all ages through the woods to observe and learn the process of maple sap collection and syrup production.
Volunteers will tap 70 maple trees on the nature center grounds and collect sap to make the syrup. See the sap boil over a roaring fire as it concentrates into “liquid gold”. When the sap is boiled, the sap’s naturally occurring water evaporates as steam, leaving the sap and its sweetness to concentrate into maple syrup.
Pure maple syrup is 100% maple sap that has been boiled down; 50 gallons of sap makes one gallon of syrup. A gallon of pure maple syrup weighs 11 pounds!
Take a stroll through the woods on a maple sugar tour to see how maple syrup is made, and join us the first 3 Sunday’s in March for the return of All You Can Eat pancake breakfast at River Bend!
