Catch Maple Season before it evaporates!

Cold nights and warm days mean one thing in Ontario – Maple Season. Our partners in Conservation at Credit Valley Conservation along with our wonderful local businesses are bringing memorable maple tastes and experiences to Caledon this spring!

Whether it’s a day trip with the family, a night out with a date or a weekend getaway with friends, there’s something for everyone in Caledon.

Welcome to the Sugar Shack

Looking for a classic sugar shack experience? Join CVC staff at Terra Cotta Conservation Area on April 6th, 7th, 13th or 14th for Sap to Syrup: A Maple Syrup Making Experience. Learn how to tap trees, collect sap and use an evaporator to make, bottle and take home your own maple syrup. Reservations are available for morning and afternoon tour times on a first-come-first-serve basis.

Escape for an overnight stay at one of Caledon’s most scenic getaways this spring and experience the Magic of Maple at the Millcroft Inn and Spa. This package includes overnight accommodations, a bottle of The Millcroft’s own maple syrup and two maple-flavoured desserts. The Millcroft is going all-out maple this season and has incorporated maple into cocktails, Headwaters Restaurant menu items and even spa treatments!

On Tap

Born in the forest and raised on the farm. The fine folks atCredit Valley Conservation, GoodLot Farmstead Brewing Co. and Wilder ClimateSolutions have teamed up to produce and release a small-batch Sap Ale in timefor spring!

"Tree Hug" is a Maple Sap Beer, crafted with love, serious sustainability standards and respect for Ontario’s forests. Made with maple sap collected from Terra Cotta Conservation Area, this sap ale replaceswater with Sugar maple sap and allows the simple act of cracking a cold one to financially support the conservation of a local landscape. Tree Hug is available for purchase at GoodLot's on-farm bottle shop, and all proceeds will be donated to the Credit Valley Conservation Foundation.
