Annual Pancake Breakfast and Maple Sugaring Celebration to be held February 22

MEDIA, Pa (January 7, 2014) – 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 from 8:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 22.

Visitors are invited to join one of the ongoing tours at Tyler to discover how sap is turned into syrup, and then take a turn tapping a tree. After, appetites are satisfied in the historic Barn with Tyler’s famous all-you-can-eat pancake and sausage breakfast. Hot coffee and cocoa accompany this delicious wintertime feast.

“What makes our event unique is that attendees get an opportunity to tap a maple tree first-hand and learn how maple syrup is made,” said Executive Director Rick Colbert. “It’s just another way for Tyler to demonstrate how dependent people are on nature for even the smallest of conveniences—and this learning opportunity happens to come with a hot and delicious breakfast!”

No pre-registration is required for this event. Adults $12, children (ages 3-12) $6, 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 the Pancake Breakfast and Maple Sugaring Celebration is March 1, 2014.
