Looking for a sugary maple syrup fix? The Maple Sugarbush Festival and Pancake Breakfast at Wesselman Woods Nature Preserve provides a remedy.
During this annual event March 3 and 4, now in its 40th year, guests are invited to dine on a hearty breakfast of sausage, all-you-can-eat pancakes with pure maple syrup, and juice, milk, and coffee. After finishing your meal, take a guided trek through the woods to see how sap is harvested from the sugar maples each year. Once the sap is gathered, visit the sugar shack to see how it is boiled down into pure maple syrup.
The event also includes family-friendly activities and maple confections for sale. Guests also will have an opportunity to sample maple syrup harvested and made from Wesselman Woods.
The festival will kick off at 7 a.m. both days and end at 1 p.m. Advance tickets are not required, but highly recommended for this event. Admission is $8 for adults and $5 for children ages 3 to 12.
