Maple Syrup Sunday

Save the Date! 

Sunday, March 17th, 2024!

Bring your family out to celebrate the spring syruping season!

Enjoy a pancake breakfast with maple syrup that is made right here at the nature center. Afterwards, take a free tour to learn about why we can make syrup in spring. Follow a naturalist into the woods to help identify a maple tree, then drill a hole so that we can collect some sap. See how the sap is cooked down into delicious maple syrup! A shuttle bus will transport visitors to and from the nature center.

This event is a fundraiser for Ledge View Nature Center, made possible by the Friends of Ledge View Nature Center, a 501©3 nonprofit, and the Calumet County Parks Department.

*Breakfast includes pancakes with maple syrup, ham, applesauce, and a beverage.
