The Sugarbush Festival brings a large, hungry crowd to Wesselman Woods

EVANSVILLE, In. (WEHT)- A long standing tradition drew a hungry crowd to Wesselman Woods today.

The Maple Sugarbush Festival is the Nature Preserve’s largest community event.
To prepare for it, the staff spent weeks collecting the maple sugar harvest from surrounding trees.

Dozens of families came to chow down on pancakes, enjoy local syrup, learn about the history of maple tapping, and about how the syrup is made.

Wesselman Woods says the taste of this syrup is different from other syrups.

Zach Garcia, with the Nature Preserve, says “the maple syrup here has an earthy taste to it and also I would be reminisced to say if I don’t mention, that it is made with love. Truly, like collecting it, boiling it, bottling it, this syrup is made with love”.

The pancake breakfast continues Sunday, 7am-1pm.
