Save The Date: Maple Sugaring Days Are on Tap March 3-4
The sweetest spot in all of Kane County will be at LeRoy Oakes Forest Preserve from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. March 3 and March 4, when the Forest Preserve District hosts “Maple Sugaring Days.”
Everyone’s invited to come learn the time-honored tradition of maple tapping. Forest Preserve naturalists will show how to tap a maple tree, and you’ll have the opportunity to try your hand at drilling and setting a tap. We’ll simmer sap over an open fire and watch as it thickens to syrup. Join us on “Sugarin’ Time” hike to learn to distinguish maples from other species of hardwood trees.
Plus, Creek Bend Nature Center will be open. You’re welcome to enjoy all of the interactive exhibits available.
No registration is required for this program. Creek Bend Nature Center is located within LeRoy Oakes Forest Preserve at 37W700 Dean St., St. Charles.
