Sugarin’ Off Pancake Breakfast
Celebrate the beginning of spring with Sugarin’ Off at River Bend Nature Center!
River Bend Nature Center will once again host the spring time tradition of Sugarin’ Off pancake breakfasts to celebrate the maple sugar harvest. Breakfasts are scheduled for every Sunday in March from 9am to 1p.
Pancakes with 100% Wisconsin maple syrup, sausage, orange juice, coffee, tea, or milk are on the menu. Skip the line and purchase your tickets in advance!
Following your breakfast, hike through the woods to observe and learn the process of maple sap collection and syrup production.
School children, families and volunteers tap over 100 maple trees on the nature center grounds and collect sap to make the syrup. See the sap boil over a roaring fire as it concentrates into “liquid gold”. When the sap is boiled, the sap’s naturally occurring water evaporates as steam, leaving the sap and its sweetness to concentrate into maple syrup.
Pure maple syrup is 100% maple sap that has been boiled down; 40 gallons of sap makes one gallon of syrup. A gallon of pure maple syrup weighs 11 pounds!
We welcome you to join us for this local tradition of discovery and fun at River Bend Nature Center!
Adults $15 / Children 10 and under $10 / Under 3 free.
Sunday March 19th
Walk-in seating available today!
