Maple Syrup Day
Venture out to CNC for Maple Syrup Day with food and fun for all ages! Admission is free for CNC members and all children. Admission is $5/nonmember adult. Start your day with a Pancake Meal, open to members only from 9-10 am for $6 (ages 13 and up), $4 (ages 3-12), under 3 free. The meal is open to the public from 10 am-2 pm: $7 (ages 13 and up), $5 (ages 3-12), under 3 free. (Note: Members will receive the discount price the entire day.) From 10 am to 4 pm, crafts, activities and demonstrations will take place at the Visitor Center, Homestead Farm, Log Schoolhouse, Sugarhouse and Sugarbush. In the Visitor Center, kids will love playing maple tree games and making crafts to take home. Stop by the wigwam to learn how Native American's used the resources along the Pine River many years ago. Catch a haywagon ride to the Sugarhouse to see how CNC boils sap into maple syrup. You'll also find an 1870's sap boiling demonstration, Sugarbush tours and a tree-tapping activity. Visit the Log Schoolhouse and Cabin for a puppet show, crafts, and activities.
