Pancakes, waffles, ice cream--they all taste better with a drizzle of maple syrup. While Maryland isn’t known for commercial production of maple syrup, this month, you can get a locally-made taste at Oregon Ridge Nature Center. They tap maple and black walnut trees and turn sap turn into thick sweetness. We hear the ins and outs of making syrup and maple candy from the center’s Jessica Jeanetta.

Maple syrup demonstrations will take place February 17, 18, 24 & 25,  from 11AM-4PM.

The Annual Pancake Breakfast will be held March 3rd and 4th at the Oregon Ridge Lodge from 8 am until noon each day. Tickets can be purchased at the door.
