The virtual line will soon form for a chance to enjoy the great outdoors in Hamilton while trees are full of sap.

Reservations open next week for maple syrup season at Westfield Heritage Village. Hamilton Conservation Authority (HCA) says the online booking will open to the public at 7 a.m. on Wednesday (Feb. 15). Two-hour timeslots are available over five Sundays in March and April, as well as two days during the March Break, before the finale on Good Friday (April 7).

The HCA adds that two demonstration sites will be open, including the modern sugar shack. Westfield will also have their maple syrup panels on display, a Maple Trivia Trail to follow, and the St. George Lions Club will be selling pancakes in Ironwood Hall.

Visitors will also be able to buy maple treats from Westfield’s general store and gift shop.

A selection of historical buildings will also be open, and HCA’s volunteer historical interpreters will be providing a variety of demonstrations during visitors’ two-hour reservations. Visitors will be outdoors for a significant portion of their visit, so dressing for wintry weather is recommended.

The program will be offered on March 5, 12, 16, 17, 19, and 26; and on April 2 and 7. This event is free for HCA membership pass holders, but they will be required to pay a $10 reservation fee.

For non-HCA members, the entry includes a $10 reservation fee, $10.50 vehicle fee, and $5 per person fee. Children ages 5 and under
