Celebrate the spring thaw and our Wisconsin heritage at Wehr’s annual Maple Sugar Days. The pandemic edition of their beloved event will be held entirely outdoors and follow all public health protocols to keep visitors and volunteers safe.
The program includes a short walk to the sugarbush, a visit to an old-time sugarin’ camp, a boil down demonstration and stories about the Native American origins of maple sugarin’.
While they can’t serve pancakes due to the pandemic, we will send you home with a sample of authentic Wisconsin maple syrup to enjoy, along with a craft kit for the kids. Space will be limited this year, so go on-line at https://friendsofwehr.org/public-events/ and register via your Milwaukee County Parks WebTrac account.
