By now I’m sure everyone is thinking spring, just in time for the 2015 Self-Guided Maple Tour on March 21 and 22! Maple sugaring has a long history in Wayne County. In the early days of Wayne County, many of the settlers used Maple Sugar as currency, to barter for goods, and some might have even paid for land with sugar. There are still many producers still making maple syrup in this area today. Join us along the 2015 Self-Guided Maple Tour on March 21 and 22 to learn more about today’s producers of maple syrup, and enjoy locally produced maple products along the way. This event is free to the public.
Please see the brochure below for more information. A map with directions to each producer is included in the brochure.

The Wayne Conservation District Board approved a change to the Districts’ review fees for the Erosion and Sediment Control program. The only category with a change is the commercial sites. After review the costs in time for reviews it was determined that the costs were not being met on commercial sites only. The result is an increase in the charges for reviews that fit this category.
