About the Maple Syrup Event:
Maple syruping is a tradition that dates back to the first nations that lived in this area. Learn about the history of maple syruping, what makes the sap flow, and the process of turning sap into syrup through hands-on syruping experience. This program is offered in hour-long timeslots to allow for smaller group sizes.

The interpretive center is currently closed due to COVID-19, but you can still roam the trails which are open daily from 6 am – 10 pm.
