Maple Sugaring Days
During late winter and early spring, great fluctuations in temperatures - freezing nights and warm days - allows sap to rise from the roots of maple trees. During Maple Sugaring Days, you'll see how the early settlers of Naperville tapped maple trees and then turned the sap into maple syrup.
