Maple Syrup Fest returns after 3-year hiatus

The Aldo Leopold Nature Center’s Maple Syrup Fest returns to Monona after a three-year break.

Maple Syrup Fest is a free, family-friendly event that offers a blend of indoor and outdoor activities. Stations throughout the nature center grounds lead visitors through the history and science of maple syruping in Wisconsin and beyond. Visitors will learn when and how to tap trees for sap, can sample real Wisconsin maple syrup, and test their skills at identifying the real deal. Maple ice cream sundaes will be available for a fee.

The event takes place Saturday, March 18, from 1–4 p.m. at Aldo Leopold Nature Center, 330 Femrite Drive, Monona.
