Maple Sugaring Days are on tap in March

GENEVA — The Forest Preserve District of Kane County will host Maple Sugaring Days from noon to 3 p.m. on March 2 and 3 at LeRoy Oakes Forest Preserve in St. Charles.

Everyone is invited to come learn the time-honored tradition of maple tapping. Forest Preserve naturalists will demonstrate how to tap a maple tree, and guests will have the opportunity to try drilling and setting a tap, before allowing the sap to simmer sap over an open fire and thicken into syrup.

Join the “Sugarin’ Time” hike to learn to distinguish maples from other species of hardwood trees. Creek Bend Nature Center will also be open.

No registration is required for this program. Creek Bend Nature Center is located within LeRoy Oakes Forest Preserve at 37W700 Dean St., St. Charles.
