Maple Syrup Time in Hobart, Indiana
We drizzle it all over our breakfast pancakes and waffles, but have you ever wondered how maple syrup is made?
Head to the Deep River County Park in Hobart during Maple Syrup Time, the second and third weekends in March, to learn about the process of making the sweet treat. Outside, visitors receive a short lesson on how trees are tapped for sap and then witness the sap being turned into syrup.

Inside the visitor’s center, kids learn about maple syrup through games and puzzles, and everyone can warm up with a mug of hot maple tea, coffee or hot chocolate.
