If you’ve never made the trek to visit the Kortright Centre in Woodbridge Ontario, just north of Toronto, now is as good a time as any. The Kortright Centre for Conservation is described as a natural oasis located on 324 hectares of pristine woodlands along the Humber River Valley. It’s truly a gorgeous piece of natural real estate.
The Kortright Centre is currently hosting the Sugarbush Maple Syrup Festival; an event that marks one of the sure signs of Spring in Canada.
Activities include demonstrations, guided trails, wagon rides and, of course, pancakes and maple syrup!
ADMISSION = $10 ($6.50 students) - includes use of the park facilities, hiking trails, sap samplings and maple syrup demonstrations. Does NOT include meals, maple syrup products, horse-drawn wagon rides, and face painting.

Getting there: Public transit will get you there; it'll be a combination of TTC and VIVA (York Transit) so there's an extra fare of about a dollar on top of the TTC fare. There's also a bit of a hike after the bus drops you off which is really fun! (partly because of the little danger involved).
