I've always thought that this event is so cool! Wesselman Woods has been hard at work collecting the maple sugar harvest from the trees of Wesselman Woods. They've been harvesting and getting the syrup ready just in time for the annual Maple Sugarbush Festival! This year the pancake breakfast will take place on two different days March 5th & March 6th.

Here's what Wesselman Woods says about the upcoming festival and breakfast:

This spring celebration will offer you the opportunity to wander through the largest urban old-growth forest in the United States while learning about maple tapping, enjoying pancakes and local syrup, and meeting our animal residents.

While compostable plates, cutlery and cups will be provided, we are offering a green incentive this year:

Bring your own reusable cup, plate or fork and GET A FREE DAY PASS to Wesselman Woods and the Welborn Baptist Foundation Nature Playscape! 


Let's come together and celebrate the magical process of tapping sugar maples!

Please note: In order to protect our staff and volunteers, masks are REQUIRED while in the Nature Center when you are not eating. We will be practicing social distancing both inside and outdoors. Masks are strongly recommended but not required outside of the Nature Center.

The breakfast will include all-you-can-eat pancakes with real Indiana maple syrup.  The breakfast all includes a sausage link and your choice of coffee, orange juice, or milk (regular or chocolate)! In order to help with crowding, they have different time slots each morning so to go you'll have to purchase tickets for your time slot.  Times available for breakfast are 7 AM, 8 AM, 9 AM, 10 AM, 11 AM, and the last spot is at noon.
