As warmer days and cooler nights begin . . . the sap starts to run . . . which means it’s time to tap the trees! On Saturday, March 18, outdoor enthusiasts are welcome to learn in-depth and hands-on about the basics of maple syruping through this small-group, workshop-style experience. After a hearty breakfast at one of the Minnesota B&Bs known as the Inns of the Valley, enjoy an afternoon of nature and education!
Starting at 11:00 am, Wild River State Park will conduct a Maple Syrup Workshop. The park is located along 18 miles of the beautiful St. Croix River. The park attracts people who enjoy hiking, horseback riding, canoeing, interpretive programs, self-guided trails, and cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. Day visitors can enjoy a leisurely paddle down the St. Croix River from the Sunrise river access to the southern park river access.
An all-season trail center is a great spot to relax after hiking or cross-country skiing on the 35-mile trail system. A visitor center with exhibits and environmental education programs is open year-round.
Registration required by calling 651-583-2125 x227. Limited to 35 participants per day.
