March 9: old-time Maple Sugar Festival at the Discovery Center

Maple Syrup, Made in Sylvan Township

(Chelsea Update would like to thank Kathy Claflin for the information in this story and the Waterloo Natural History Association for sponsoring it.)

On Saturday, March 9 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m., everyone is invited to an old-time maple sugar festival at the Discovery Center.

It’s time for that traditional rite of spring – tapping maple trees.

Watch a short film about how maple syrup is made, and then go on a guided walk to see various methods of collecting sap and how it is boiled down to make syrup.  Antique equipment for making syrup will be on display from the Waterloo Farm Museum, and maple products will be available for purchase.

Eddy Discovery Center, 17030 Bush Road in Sylvan Township.
