The Bendix Woods County Park will offer public Maple Syrup programs in place of their Sugar Camp Days this year.
The two programs will happen in March at the park on Timothy Road in New Carlisle. A Sweet Trees program will happen on March 6, and a Maple Sugar Stroll on March 27-28.
Sweet Trees: Sap, Syrup and All Things Maple will take place on Saturday, March 6 from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm. Tour the sugar bush in a family or household group, tap a tree, hang a bucket, and visit the sugar house. After your adventure, enjoy hot drinks and a maple treat. Each group will take home a half-pint of pure Bendix Woods maple syrup! The fee is $15 per group of up to six people, and advance registration is required by March 3.
Maple Sugar Stroll will take place on Saturday, March 27 and Sunday, March 28 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.
