Maple Madness!

                       March 2 - April 7, 2013  

 Maple syrup season kicks off at Mountsberg and Crawford Lake

 The beginning of the Maple syrup season means that there are many places around Halton where you and your families can check out how this uniquely Canadian Sweet Treat is made, and even taste a little of the yummy stuff!

Maple Madness is the theme this year at Crawford Lake and Mountsberg, two of the parks in Conservation Halton. Visitors are welcome to visit the parks, sample the sweetness and learn about the process of Maple Syrup making, from sap to supermarket shelves. The festival runs weekends from Sat.
