Once again this year on March 25 from 12 noon to 4 p.m. the SharonAudubon Center located on 325 Cornwall Bridge Rd. in Sharon is hosting the annual Maplefest.
Visitors will enjoy on-going, guided, 45-minute tours through the Center’s sugaring operation, including a working sugarhouse and a re-creation of Native American and early colonial sugaring methods. Watch as pure sugar maple sap is collected from the trees and turned into delicious maple syrup. Be sure to wear warm clothes and boots, as much of the tour is outdoors.
Fresh, homemade maple baked goods and coffee will also be available for purchase during the day as part of the Maple Bake Sale. Each treat will be made with the Center’s very own maple syrup! Fresh syrup will be available for purchase, while supplies last, as well as locally made maple candy.
Admission: $6.00 adults and $4.00 children (2 and under free)
While visiting the Center don't miss the raptor aviaries. Audubon Sharon houses various species of Birds of Prey such as hawks, owls, falcons, and an eagle that have been determined non-releasable—meaning that they would not be able to survive on their own in the wild. The birds reside in large, outdoor aviaries, which are just a short walk from our Visitor Center building.
