POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. - The countdown to spring has begun, and Dutchess County is ready to kick off the season.

The Dutchess County Parks Division will once again host its annual Maple Open House and Pancake Breakfast at Bowdoin Park, located at 85 Sheafe Road in the Town of Poughkeepsie.

The Maple Open House will be held on Saturday, March 25th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and is free to attend.

The Pancake Breakfast will be held on Saturday, April 1st from 9 to 11:30 a.m. and the cost to attend is $5 per person, with children 6 and under free of charge. Both events are open to the public.

“We look forward to hosting our annual Maple Open House and Pancake Breakfast again this spring," said County Executive Marc Molinaro. "Both events provide families, children, and adults of all ages the chance to visit one of Dutchess County’s award-winning parks while learning about the art of making maple syrup and tasting syrup made directly at Bowdoin Park.”

As part of the Maple Open House, participants will have the opportunity to take part in a hands-on learning experience about the art of making maple syrup. Participants will engage in different steps of the maple syrup process from tapping the trees, to collecting the sap, and then boiling it down to syrup. Native American methods for creating maple sugar will also be explored.

To learn more about both events or other programs offered at Bowdoin Park, call the Dutchess County Parks Division at (845) 298-4602 or visit www.dutchessny.gov.
