“FLIPPING OUT” WITH PANCAKES AND MAPLE SYRUP AT TYLER ARBORETUM

Annual Pancake Breakfast and Maple Sugaring Celebration to be held February 28

MEDIA, Pa (January 28, 2015) – Bundle up and enjoy this annual celebration of the maple tree’s sweet offerings by attending Tyler Arboretum’s annual Pancake Breakfast and Maple Sugaring Celebration fundraiser from 8:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 28.

Visitors are encouraged to visit the various learning stations to learn how sap is turned into maple syrup, and then take a turn tapping a tree. Breakfast cravings are satisfied in the historic Barn with Tyler’s mouthwatering all-you-can-eat pancake and sausage breakfast. Hot coffee, hot cocoa and other beverages accompany this tasty winter feast.

“Participants get a rare, hands-on experience by witnessing how sap from a tree evolves into the maple syrup occupying their pantry and breakfast tables,” said Sally Rogers. “It’s quite a fascinating process, and guests will ‘flip’ for the all-you-can-eat pancake and sausage breakfast!”

No pre-registration is required for this event. Adults $12, children (ages 3-12) $8, and children under age three are free. All proceeds benefit Tyler Arboretum. Because this is a fundraiser, no free passes are allowed for this event. The snow date for this event is March 7, 2015.
