Maple Syrup Saturday!

(As last year, the photographs in this Saturday post are brought to you by Tori Wood, 10-year-old professional Syrup Fest photographer to the stars.)

Did you make it to the Nature Center today for the first day of our Maple Syrup Festival? We had a record crowd come to enjoy the sunny, almost-spring Saturday. People of all ages, including the happy family above, ate breakfast to the tunes of some of Cedar Rapids’ most philanthropic (and fun!) musical acts, like the Rock Hounds, pictured below.

If you missed Saturday’s event, don’t worry! The Maple Syrup Festival continues this Sunday, March 7th from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm, rain or shine! For directions and other info, check out our website!
