This Weekend in Lowell: It’s a Sweet Time at the Nature Center

Word is our unusually warm January and February will mean less maple syrup this year. That’s all the more reason to go out and enjoy what we do have. The Wittenbach Wege Center is making it easy to do so with their Maple Syrup Days. It’s front and center on what to do this weekend in Lowell.

Mmmmm…Maple Syrup Days and Pancake Breakfast

The Wittenbach Wege Center is getting the batter and frying pans ready to serve up a delicious breakfast tomorrow. From 8-11:30am, they will be dishing out a pancake breakfast. This is Maple Syrup Days so there will, of course, be maple syrup and maple butter on hand. Plus, you’ll get sausages, orange juice and a bottomless cup of coffee. All proceeds from the breakfast go to support the programming at the nature center.

Once you’ve polished off breakfast, work off those calories by hitting the trails. Not only will you get some fresh air, but you can also stop by some living history demonstrations. Both a Native American Camp and a Pioneer Sugar Bush will be set up along the trail. A free will donation is recommended for those visiting the demonstrations.
