Asbury Woods Partnership will host its 2017 Maple Festival on April 1 & 2 from 11:00am – 4:00pm at Asbury Woods Nature Center. The annual Maple Festival allows visitors from all over the region to experience a tour of how maple syrup production has evolved over time.
From Native American times to the Colonial period to today’s modern methods, this event provides a comprehensive history lesson related to maple trees.
