February LaGrange County Parks report

Breakfast with the Birds…

Breakfast with the Birds is for anyone who is free one Wednesday morning of each month.  The program starts with coffee and doughnuts. Then a talk or discussion is offered by the naturalist. Bring your binoculars and enjoy a hike in the woods afterwards. Recommended donation is $1.00.

“Teddy”

February 19, 8:30 a.m. - Our most conservation minded president was Teddy Roosevelt. We owe to him the principles of hunter ethics and fair chase, the National Park System, and plush bears. He had the  courage to stand tall and speak on behalf of protecting wilderness.

Folk jam…

Folk Music Jam Sessions are hosted the fourth Sunday of the month. Jam sessions are mostly folk, country and bluegrass music with other styles thrown in from time to time.

This month’s Jam is February 23, 1:30-5:00 p.m.  If you have any more questions contact Erv Troyer, 463-2247, reo43@aol.com or Maple Wood at 463-4022, maplwood@ligtel.com.

Maple Syrup Days…

Start planning ahead for the sweetest of events. Maple sugar season is just around the corner. We will celebrate the syrup harvest at Maple Syrup Days, March 15-16, 7:00 a.m. -3:00 p.m.

Syrup season volunteers are helpful from mid-February through the end of syrup season, usually middle or late March. Sappers are on a call list for sap gathering alerts when the buckets are nearly full. Maple Syrup Days needs volunteers to keep tables tidy and syrup bottles full.

If you would like to be involved in syrup season contact Maple Wood Nature Center, 463-4022, lagrangecountyparks @yahoo.com.

All programs, unless otherwise noted, are held at Maple Wood Nature Center, 4.5 miles east and one mile south of LaGrange. For more information about programs or LaGrange County Parks call 260-854-2225, 260-463-4022 or lagrangecountyparks@yahoo.com.
