You can watch the maple syrup-making process from start to finish–from tapping the tree for sap to boiling it into syrup–and then taste it fresh off the fire at the Maple Syrup Festival this weekend at North Park Village Nature Center. From 10 AM to 3 PM on Saturday and Sunday there’ll be storytelling, arts and crafts, and campfires. You can also hike the trails on the 46-acre nature preserve. The event is free and there’s no registration required.
