Maple Syruping Festival

It’s the time of year where trees are full of sticky and gooey sap. Learn how to extract the amber liquid with a tapping lesson. Then collect sap and watch it boil down into a sweet treat. Sample the sweet collection with pancakes. (1-4 p.m. Sun. $6. French Regional Park, 12605 Rockford Road, Plymouth. 763-559-6700. threeriversparkdistrict.org.)
