Maple Sugar Days


It’s time once again for the sap to rise and maple trees to be tapped for delicious maple sugar and syrup! Maple Sugar Days is a celebration of this great Ohio heritage! Join us at Farbach-Werner Nature Preserve on Saturday and Sunday, February 25 and 26 from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. each day.

There will be guided hikes through the sugar bush to see how maple trees are tapped and fun stories about the maple sugaring tradition. A model Native American sugar camp, a pioneer sugar camp and backyard evaporators will show how syrup is turned to sugar. Sample foods prepared with maple will be available, including sundaes, maple cotton candy, and maple syrup on waffles for a small fee.
