True maple syrup is rare these days—and expensive. In 2010 pure maple syrup was nearly worth its weight in gold. Most of the syrup bought in the United States comes from Quebec, but the sweet, sticky stuff was once harvested right here. The Waterloo Recreational Area will celebrate Michigan’s trunk-tapping history with its Maple Sugar Festival. Visitors will be able to trek into the woods with a frontier expert, who will demonstrate how maple syrup is made—from tapping the tree and collecting the sap, to boiling it down, to pouring it on your pancakes. Maple products will be available for purchase. Saturday, March 10 & Sunday, March 11, 10am-4pm. Free, members / $2 non-members / $5 family non-members. Michigan Recreation Passport required for entry to the Waterloo Recreation Area. Gerald E. Eddy Discovery Center, 17030 Bush Rd., Chelsea. 734-475-3170.
