This winter has been a hard one – but never fear…the end is in sight! Gradually, temps will begin the upward climb and all this snow will soon be a thing of the past. Early spring marks the start of maple syrup season here at the Audubon Center of the North Woods and we invite you to get outside and celebrate the warmer temps at our annual Maple Syrup Day – the perfect cure for cabin fever!
Enjoy a lovely pancake brunch and learn about the history and process of making maple syrup. Actively participate in all the phases of syrup-making including identifying and tapping maple trees, collecting sap, observing the sap being boiled down into liquid gold maple syrup and tasting the result.
This year, we’ve added our zipline into the day’s activities so those who are brave enough can harness up and experience a rush of adrenaline as they zoom down the line at the end of our high ropes course. In addition, our wildlife barn will be open, so stop by and say ‘hi’ to our critters during the day. The day is a great educational and fun event for the whole family!
Programs and brunch run from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. Hands-on demonstrations are ongoing, so you can enjoy brunch before, after, or in the middle of your ‘syruping’ activities.
