Throughout the day on March 25th, you can enjoy the opportunity to get a hands on learning experience about the process of making Maple Syrup. You'll take part in tapping tapping the trees, collecting the sap, and then boiling it down to syrup. You can also purchase the syrup after your tour.

During the Pancake Breakfast you can enjoy locally made syrup with your family and friends while getting excited for the snow to melt and spring to arrive. For more information you can visit Dutchess County's official website or Bowdoin Parks page.
