Maple Season in Mountsberg Conservation Area, Ontario

Maple trees are endemic to Ontario and Québec and a favorite past time for Canadians is to visit sugar shacks and celebrate maple syrup season in early spring. The Mountsberg Wildlife Center near Toronto is one of the main Sugar Shacks in Ontario. Warm sunny days and cold nights draw the sap out of the maple, ready to be collected and turned into the syrup. Buildings on-site house shops and displays to facilitate sampling and learning about maple syrup.
