It’s easy to gobble down our food without considering where it came from — especially with delicious maple syrup! Part of The Hudson Mills Interpretive Events Programs, “Journey to the Sugarbush” will take participants through the maple syrup making process right here in Washtenaw County.  Mark Irish will serve as a guide with a talk on the history of maple sugaring and a hike to a stand of maple trees, to collect sap. Then it’s off to the evaporator to turn it into syrup. See how the best breakfast food (take that, bacon!) is made. All you can eat pancake and sausage breakfast for an additional $3.50/per child, $5.50/per adult. Maple syrup starter kits available for $25. Reservation required. 

10am, 11am, and Noon, Saturdays and Sundays through March 17
