The Fresh Air Fund’s annual Sugar Maple Celebration will be held at Sharpe Reservation in Fishkill on Saturday, March 23, fro 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The annual event allows members of the community to visit the more than 2,000-acre site and see the process of making syrup.

“I love the enthusiasm, the way it kind of exposes [attendees] to the process and it’s something they can even see,” said Rob Lieblein, Sharpe Reservation Educator.

Visitors to Sharpe will be “taken through the whole process in a condensed way,” he remarked.

Those who attend the Sugar Maple Celebration will be able to see the Nature Discovery Center. There will be the Planetarium Show and a Live Animal Show.
