Evansville Wesselman Nature Preserve Hosts Maple Sugarbush Festival
Have you ever tasted real maple sugar? If you have, you know how sweet and rich it is, AND how wonderful it tastes on fresh pancakes! On Saturday, March 2 and Sunday, March 3 you are invited to see how maple syrup is collected and eat hot pancakes drizzled with delicious maple syrup during the Maple Sugarbush Festival and Pancake Breakfast at Wesselman Woods Nature Preserve.
Bring your family and celebrate the maple sugar harvest from the trees of the Preserve. Take a walk through the woods and see how sap, harvested from the sugar maple trees, becomes pure maple syrup. Then enjoy a hearty breakfast of all-you-can-eat pancakes, sausage and a beverage from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. both days.
Adults cost $8 (13 years and over), youths are $5, and children under 4 years old are free! You can simply show up and purchase your tickets at the entrance gate during the Maple Sugarbush Festival!
