CAMPBELLVILLE, ON – February 23, 2022 – Conservation Halton celebrates the sweetest time of the year with Maple Town at Mountsberg Conservation Area. From March 5 to April 10, guests can visit the sugarbush and see maple trees tapped for their crystal-clear sap and watch it be transformed into maple syrup and other sweet treats.

“We are thrilled to invite the community to join us in a great springtime tradition – celebrating maple syrup season! This year, we are pleased to return to our traditional program and offer immersive day and evening Maple Town experiences at our 150-year-old working sugarbush at Mountsberg,” said Hassaan Basit, CEO of Conservation Halton.

There are day and evening Maple Town activities and opportunities for independent exploration or guided tours of the sugarbush. Witness maple sap transformed into syrup in the evaporator, warm up by a fireside lounge or let the kids run wild in the natural playground. Visitors can satisfy sweet cravings with maple syrup drizzled pancakes (Pancake House), maple taffy on snow (Discovery Centre) and other maple products (retail store). Say hello to the sheep, goats, donkeys, bunnies, chickens and Percheron horses in the barn. Book a tour and enjoy a family wagon ride through the sugarbush, tree cookie branding and a maple syrup tasting flight. Maple Town visitors are welcome to explore all of Mountsberg’s trails, historical sites and the Raptor Centre.

“With over 600 maple trees, Mountsberg’s sugarbush has been producing maple syrup for over 150 years and educating the public for over 40 years. We’re proud to be able to offer our visitors a fun and educational experience when they visit Maple Town,” said Brenna Bartley, Education Manager at Conservation Halton.
