With weather conditions being favorable next week with warm days and cold nights, Maple Sugaring Weekends at Lake Metroparks Farmpark has been extended through March 16 & 17.

Discover the history and technology of maple syrup and learn the maple sugaring process!

I love Lake Metroparks Farmpark and their many many events are a huge part of the reason. At Christmas time, I got to make a toy in Santa's workshop while getting snowed on indoors. I've watched dogs do some amazing things during Working Dogs Weekend. I've run with zombies! Why not make Maple Syrup?
