Remember when it felt like March instead of February?  When the sun was shining warm and the wind was calm?  It was only a couple days ago!

Check out the maple tree's reaction to early spring sunshine.  We're hoping to see these conditions return for this weekend.

SugarFest is taking place at Westmoreland Sanctuary on March 9 and 10.  Reservations for breakfast on both days are full, but there's plenty of room to join one of our maple sugaring demonstrations at 10am and 12pm on Saturday and Sunday!

And there's plenty of room to stretch your legs on our trail system too!  Explore the early spring forest, search for signs of spring like emerging skunk cabbage, listen to birds like the Tufted Titmouse and Black-capped Chickadees practicing their territorial spring songs.  Grab a trail map at the kiosk near the parking lot or download and print one from here.

We hope to see you this weekend!
