Enjoy piping hot pancakes smothered in fresh maple syrup outdoors under our pavilion nestled in the woods. Take a guided wagon ride through the sugar bush and learn about the history of maple syrup. Climb, jump, and run in the Play Barn. See dramatic birds of prey demonstrations in the Raptor Centre at 11am, 12pm, 1pm, 2pm & 3pm. View bison, eagles, hawks and owls along the Wildlife Walkway.
