Yummy in the tummy, there’s nothing more Canadian than eating pancakes with warm maple syrup in the great outdoors! How fortunate we are to have three Maple Festivals that are all unique, so close to home.

  1. At Bronte Creek Provincial Park (a favourite destination of Today’s Family summer campers) they specialize in the history of maple syrup presented on a heritage farm from the 1900’s.  Learn about the history and culture of maple syrup and enjoy their pancake house, maple candy, maple taffy, wagon rides and guided tours of maple lane. Open daily during March Break 9:30am – 3pm.
  2. Mountsberg Conservation Area transforms into Maple Town where you can explore the sugar bush and enjoy the sweet treats it produces. Enjoy pancakes in the outdoor pavilion and don’t miss the birds of prey show featuring eagles, hawks, owls and more. Open 10am – 4pm daily during March Break and weekends.
  3. Crawford Lake Conservation presents Sweetwater Season,where you can learn how maple syrup was first discovered and used by Ontario’s First Peoples. Open 10am – 4pm daily.

The Burlington Public Library is holding a lot of different activities throughout the week at each of their branches. Given there are too many things to list, for a full calendar please check the Library website.

The luck of the Irish… Visit Ireland House on Sunday, March 17 for their History Explorers Club and the theme that day is Maple Production. This is a supervised drop-off program, but make sure you register in advance so you get a spot.

Tomorrow morning, we will continue with Hamilton happenings…
