Maple Sugarin’ at the Prairie

The trees have been tapped, the temperatures are just right and the sap is flowing! Join the Darke County Parks on Saturday, March 7th from 8:00am-4:00pm for Maple Sugarin’ at the Prairie! This early spring day at Shawnee Prairie offers guided tours through history and science as we learn the process of turning sap into syrup. After our tour through the woods, we’ll visit the Sugar Shack, where you can warm up in the steam-filled evaporator room as the sap spends countless hours on a boil to reduce it down to syrup. Then head out to the Log House and Blacksmith Shop where you can visit with our 200-year-old pioneers and discuss 18th century life. There will also be a 50/50 raffle. Finally, complete the day at the Nature Center where the gift shop will be full of maple goodies for your sweet tooth!

The Friends of the Parks will once again be serving up a hearty breakfast of waffles, sausage, juice, coffee and of course pure Ohio Maple Syrup!

Breakfast will be served from 8:00am-12:00pm. Tickets are available for a $5 donation at the door or you can stop by the Nature Center to purchase your tickets ahead of time. Additional sausage is available for an extra $1. Carry-Out is available. For more information, please call the Nature Center at 937.548.0165.
