Celebrate maple syrup in Michigan

Sugar Bush

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) March is the time of year when we’re getting a little tired of winter and ready for spring break. But something sweet is going on between those times: it’s Sugarbush at Blandford Nature Center!

Sugarbush Tours teach kids about the process of tapping trees for maple syrup. There’s a tour coming up on Saturday, March 15 at 2 p.m. at Blandford Nature Center. You can see Native American, Pioneer, and modern methods of maple syrup production and see inside their very own sugar house! The program costs $3 for members and $6 for non-members. It’s open for all ages, but registration is required. You can call (616) 735-6240.

Blandford’s Sugarbush Festival is on Saturday, March 22, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. There will be fun family activities that investigate the process of making maple syrup. Enjoy face painting, puppet shows, horses, and an all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast. Check out Blandford’s website for prices.
