Enjoy spring in Minnesota’s North Woods with activities exploring maple syrup and conservationist Aldo Leopold.

Learn about the process of producing maple syrup by tapping trees and collecting sap to boil down into syrup. Sample a variety of maple treats, including ice cream, popcorn, and lemonade. Kids can make a pancake and then drizzle it with maple syrup. Then jump aboard a shuttle and visit a commercial syrup production facility, TimberSweet, in action.

Visitors can also explore the life of Aldo Leopold, conservationist, forester, philosopher, educator, writer, and outdoor enthusiast. Activities include readings from Leopold's collection of essays, Sand County Almanac, screenings of Green Fire, a documentary about his life, Dutch oven cooking, demonstrations on how to build a Leopold bench, and nature walks.
