SHARON — The Sharon Audubon Center will host MapleFest on Saturday, March 17, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is $5 for adults and $3 for children.

The event will feature 45-minute guided tours of the center’s maple sugaring operation. The tours take visitors down Maple Trail, where they can peek at the sap dripping into hanging buckets while learning about the tapping and gathering process. They will also stop at the Sugarhouse to watch the sap turn into syrup. The last stop of the tour includes a re-creation of Native American and early Colonial sugaring methods.
