Preparations begin for Maple Sugarin’ at the Prairie

February 13, 2018

The maple sap has started to run, and many Darke County Parks’ volunteers and staff have fired up the sugar shack for the maple sugaring season! Freezing nights and thawing days cause the sap to move, bringing the sweetness one step closer to the table. For some volunteers it will be just another February, for others it’s an opportunity to learn a new skill and help out the park district at the same time.

 

 

 

The Maple Sugarin’ at the Prairie Tours and Waffle Breakfast will be held on Saturday, March 3rd.  This late winterday at Shawnee Prairie offers guided tours through history and science, learning the process of turning sap into syrup. After the tour through the woods, visit the sugar shack, and 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 to visit with the early settlers and discuss life on the frontier. Finally, complete the day at the Nature Center where the gift shop and bake sale will be full of maple goodies fit for any sweet tooth!Tours will begin at 8am and run every half-hour.

 

 

 

The Friends of the Parks’ annual Waffle Breakfast will once again be serving up a hearty meal of waffles, sausage, juice, coffee, and of course pure maple syrup! Adults tickets are $6 and children 3-12 are $3. Carry-out is available, and extra sausage can be purchased for $1 more. Breakfast will be served from 8:00am-12:00pm. Tickets will be available at the door on the day of the breakfast or presale tickets may be purchased at the Nature Center. Call (937) 548-0165 for more information!
