Each year, usually during late February and March, these facilities offer some type of maple sugaring demonstrations. They all offer something different, but all are educational. Some have special tours for school groups, a few feature pancake breakfasts or other food, and some have special, once-a-year maple events. Most of these facilities charge a small fee. Please contact them directly for schedules and more information.
