LANSING, Mich. — Hi, my name is Abby Losey and I’m Eli Dyer and we’re from Springport Middle School and here’s what’s going on around town for kids like us.

Come to the Fenner Nature Center to celebrate the tradition of making maple syrup. In Fenner’s own sugar bush, experience the history of making maple syrup with hands-on demonstrations throughout the day.

Learn about some of the tools and techniques that various cultures through history have used to harvest the sap and convert it into maple syrup and sugar. The festival offers numerous fun and educational demonstrations and activities for the whole family.

Admission is free but there is a suggested donation of $5 for parking.
