Pancakes to be cooked at Pattison Park

What does real maple syrup taste like?  You can try it out on a stack of pancakes at the annual Pancakes in the Park breakfast on Saturday, March 13 at Pattison Park, located on state Route 50 in Stonelick Township.

The event runs from 8:30 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. and has some fun activities for the whole family to do, to work off the delicious breakfast at the park lodge.

“We will have hands-on activities to show you how to tap a tree and there will be demonstrations of how Native Americans and pioneers boiled down the tree sap to make syrup,” said Clermont Parks Chief Naturalist Keith Robinson.  “We will have naturalist-led hikes in the park to help you identify various trees and wildlife.”
