**Due to concerns about the spread of the COVID-19 virus, this year’s MapleFest and Bake Sale has been canceled. If you wish to visit the center to walk the trails or purchase maple syrup, please check for updates about our hours. Thank you!**
Join Sharon Audubon Center for a fun-filled day of celebrating everything Maple! Enjoy ongoing, guided, 45-minute tours of our center’s sugaring operation, including a working sugarhouse and a re-creation of Native American and early colonial sugaring methods. Watch as pure sugar maple sap is collected from the trees and turned into delicious maple syrup. Wear warm clothes and boots, as much of the tour is outdoors.
- All ages welcome
- Admission: $7 adults and $5 children ages 12 and under
- No pre-registration is necessary
Fresh, homemade maple baked goods and coffee will also be available for purchase during the day as part of the Maple Bake Sale. Each treat will be made with the center’s very own maple syrup! Fresh syrup will be available for purchase while supplies last, as well as locally made maple candy, maple cream, and maple sugar.
