Festival celebrates maple sugar season

February 21, 2017 by  

The annual Sapsucker Festival is returning to Audubon next month.

As part of a fundraiser for the James John Audubon Center and the Audubon-Oaks Lions Club, guests will learn all about maple sugar techniques of the Native Americans, Colonial pioneers, and modern day. There will also have the opportunity to taste fresh maple syrup and purchase some to take home. There will be tree tapping demonstrations, live owl presentations, and bird walks to look for the sapsucker led by a professional ornithologist. In addition, the Kids’ Corner will have lots of traditional crafts activities to keep the younger ones entertained.

There is an all-day breakfast where guests can enjoy a stack of freshly made pancakes with freshly tapped maple syrup. Tickets are $5 each, and there will also be several basket raffles and the gift show will be offering plenty of bird-inspired gifts.

Funds raised at this event will benefit the Audubon Center’s environmental education programs.

This event has several sponsors who help keep it free to the public, which includes companies from all over the area including Royersford. They will likely be mentioned in any print advertising such as flyers.

The Sapsucker Festival will be held on March 4 from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm at the James John Audubon Center at Mill Grove. To find out more about planned activities, call 610-666-5593 x109.
