Essex Region Conservation Authority presents Maple March Break for Families at John R. Park Homestead on Tuesday, March 14 and Friday, March 17, 2017.
March marks the start of spring and a sweet-tasting tradition. Join the Essex Region Conservation Authority to celebrate Maple Syrup’s natural and cultural heritage in our community.
At Maple March Break for Families guests will enjoy touring Join R. Park Homestead with a costumed guide and discover the sweet process of maple syrup and sugar making in the pioneer method.
You’ll help carry the sap using pails and a wooden yoke. Try your hand at the brace and bit drill. See the trees tapped and the sap evaporating. Learn the history of this sweet springtime treat as you help to make and taste maple sugar.
The fun takes place from at 1:30pm-3pm.
Tuesday, March 14 & Friday, March 17, 2017.
