Maple Sugaring Event offered at Tahquamenon Falls State Park

Tahquamenon Falls State Park will host “Maple Sugaring Days” at the Upper Falls, Saturday, March 24, from 12-4 p.m.

Participants will visit multiple demonstration stations set up along a nature trail, to learn about the process of converting maple sap into syrup. The demonstrations will include both historical and modern methods of making syrup.

“Maple sugaring is a great outdoor activity for families to enjoy in March, when the temperatures start to rise and the sap starts flowing,” said park interpreter Theresa Neal. “Visitors in the past have been amazed to learn that the trees in your own back yard can produce this seasonal treat.”

The sugar bush demonstrations will feature hands-on activities and maple syrup experts will be on hand to answer questions and provide advice about at home maple sugaring.
