Tahquamenon Falls State Park will host "Maple Sugaring Day" at the Upper Falls, Saturday, March 23, from noon to 4 p.m.
Free guided tours of the park’s sugar bush take place hourly beginning at noon, with the last tour leaving at 3 p.m. Participants will visit multiple demonstration stations set up along a hiking trail to learn about the process of converting maple sap into syrup. The demonstrations will include both historical and modern methods of making syrup.
The sugar bush demonstrations will feature hands-on activities and maple syrup experts will be in attendance to answer questions and provide advice about at-home maple sugaring. Pancakes will be available for participants to taste a variety of homemade syrups from the region, and local vendors will have maple sugaring products available for purchase.
There is no cost to participate in the sugar bush tours; however, a Recreation Passport is required for all vehicles entering the park.
