Tapping In

It’s almost spring in the Tri-State and that means it’s time for the 43rd annual Wesselman Woods Maple Sugarbush Festival.

Staff members and volunteers from Wesselman will show participants the process of tapping sugar maples from the first drop of sap to the final boil of maple syrup.

Guided hikes showcase the nature preserve’s sugarbush and visitors will have the chance to explore Wesselman Woods on their own with interactive and informative self-guided hikes. Masks are required to be worn inside the Nature Center and during guided hikes.

Due to COVID-19, the traditional pancake breakfast before the start of the event is cancelled, but you can still enjoy the maple syrup by purchasing it from the Nature Center.

The Maple Sugarbush Festival will take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. March 2 through March 6. Regular admission of $10 is required for entry.
