It’s Maple Syrup Time @ Beaver Lake Nature Center

It’s Maple Syrup Time @ Beaver Lake Nature Center

In this part of the world, one of the signs of spring is Maple Syrup Time at Beaver Lake. The Beaver Lake staff is now preparing extensive programming centered around the year’s “First Harvest” including a demonstration sugarbush with six different stations to introduce visitors to the heritage of maple sugaring as well as an opportunity to sample the fruits of photosynthesis. The sugarbush will be open to the public and staffed with interpreters every weekend in March. On Saturdays, the sugarbush will be open from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. and on Sundays from 1 – 4 p.m.

This is a free program with the $2 per car admission to the park.

The sugarbush will not be the only part of the Nature Center bustling with activity; the Visitor Center itself will be the spot to get breakfast in addition to many types of maple goodies. Every Saturday in March, Pancake Breakfasts will be from 9 a.m. – Noon and depending on the appetite, will range from $2 to $4. Maple goodies such as maple cream and maple candy will be for sale by the Friends of Beaver Lake.

For more information please call 638-2519. Beaver Lake Nature Center is an Onondaga County Park located 4 miles west of Baldwinsville off of Route 370.
