Maple syrup festivals in Iowa in early March

Word has it this is a good year for sap in Iowa  – the kind that is used to make maple syrup. And there will be two festivals in late early March when a lot of us Iowans are climbing the walls, desperate for spring and short of that, distractions. So here’s the sticky scoop: Indian Creek Nature Center in Cedar Rapids and Harman Reserve Nature Center in Cedar Falls  are each having a two-day festival Saturday March 2 and Sunday March 3. They’re about an hour apart from each other.
