(HANCOCK) Do you know how your syrup got to your breakfast table? Discover the whole process from the maple tree to the bottle during Botna Bend’s annual Maple Tree Tapping event.
Help celebrate a 19 year tradition at Botna Bend on Saturday, March 3rd at 10:00 a.m. or 11:00 a.m. Each year more than 300 gallons of sap is collected at the park.
