March is Maple Sugaring Month in Michigan and Wayne County Parks has a sweet Saturday program available for the entire family! Bundle up and join our naturalists at Cass Benton Park in Northville on Saturday, March 9 or March 16 for a maple sugaring educational program.

Bring the whole family for a celebration of this enjoyable spring ritual where attendees will learn how Native Americans were the first to discover that sap was a tasty treat and taught early settlers who to collect and boil it. A short hike in the woods for a hands-on demonstration of tree tapping, sap collection and boiling is part of the fun. All ages welcome but the trail is not stroller friendly. Please note that the entire program is outdoors and the trail may be muddy.

There are two different time slots to choose from (10:00 AM or 12:30 PM) and the program lasts approximately 1.5 hours. Cass Benton Park is located in Northville, off Northville Road between Six Mile and Seven Mile Road.

Advanced registration and pre-payment are required by calling (734) 261-1990. The cost is $6.00 per child and $2.00 per adult for Wayne County residents.

For more information, please call (734) 261-1990.
