The Environmental Learning Center in Oskaloosa will hold its annual Maple Syrup Festival Saturday morning (3/30). Mahaska County Conservation Board naturalist Laura DeCook talks about the festival.
“I will give a presentation about the process and history of maple syruping. And to end the event, we will be sampling maple syrup on ice cream. It’s maple syrup that we have made ourselves at the conservation board.”
The Maple Syrup Festival is this coming Saturday from 10 to 11am at the Environmental Learning Center at 2342 Highway 92 East in Oskaloosa. DeCook says this year’s festival is being held indoors because of wet weather and flooding around Eveland Access where the maple trees are.
