This year, in place of the Maple Syrup Festival, you're invited to register for a 10-person Maple Syrup Saturday tour. Tours will be held March 13 & 27.
Led by a Fenner tour guide, you will visit stations like the Modern Evaporator, the Historic Syruping Methods and the Hitching Demonstration to learn about this forest-to-table product, how it is harvested and how it is tied to our Michigander heritage. Participants will also have the opportunity to try tapping a tree, carrying sap yokes and other hands-on demonstrations. Each tour runs 1 hour and 30 minutes.
Mask requirements and COVID-19 sanitizing protocols will be in place.
Tickets are $15 for Fenner Conservancy Members and $20 for Non-Members. Pre-registration is recommended, as walk-in tour slots are limited. Go to mynaturecenter.org/maplesyrup to register today.
With your ticket you will receive:
–A bottle of local maple syrup
–A personal-size take-and-bake pancake kit
–A Maple Syrup Saturday Program & Trail Map
–A guaranteed spot in your selected time slot
You will also have the opportunity to purchase additional syrup, maple products and maple cotton candy on those Saturdays.
