Every year in early spring Ranger Jon Fenner and his staff tap the silver maple trees that call Botna Bend Park home & collect their sticky sweet sap to make their own special maple syrup. Join us on August 14th from 8:30 to 11:00 a.m. to taste the fruits of their labor!
Grilled pancakes & sausage will be served with our homemade maple syrup along with coffee & orange juice from 8:30 to 11:00 a.m. so don't be late! Breakfast is free but free will donations are gratefully accepted at your pickup & will be used to fund projects & improvements at Botna Bend Park.
