Make Maple Syrup
Wild River State Park is one of several state parks that educates visitors on the history of making maple syrup. In addition, they are offering a hands-on lesson for participants to tap the trees, monitor the flow of the sap and cook the sap down to syrup form. The event begins around mid-March. Sap flow is dependent on the weather and may begin to flow as early as mid to late February. No matter what the weather, their is much to be done and everyone plays a part. After the process is complete, each participant gets to bring home a jar of their very own homemade maple syrup to savor and enjoy.
