Park District celebrates maple season

Maple syrup

The Clermont County Park District celebrates maple season with its 14th annual Pancakes in the Park event March 9.

OWENSVILLE – Cold nights and warm days have the sap running through local sugar maple trees. The Clermont County Park District has been collecting it for about a month and is ready to share the results of its efforts during a popular community event – Pancakes in the Park.

Join us for a bite and a look at how syrup gets made.

“This event has been a great tradition for the Park District for the last 13 years,” said Park District Director Chris Clingman said. “We’re looking forward to having people enjoying the meal, enjoying the chance to learn and just enjoying a morning in the park.

“We have excellent facilities and programs all over the county, but Pancakes in the Park has become our signature event. We are always trying to create family-friendly opportunities that tie our daily lives to the natural world. This is a perfect example. People eat breakfast every day, but how often do they realize some of what is on their table could come from their own back yard?”
