Maple Sugaring Operation

A maple sugaring operation, which has been in existence since 1971, gives students the experience of tapping the maple trees, collecting sap, and boiling it into maple syrup in the school's sugarhouse. In the winter, over 6,000 feet of tubing is suspended throughout the maple bush to gather sap, which is taken to the sugarhouse where it is boiled down in a wood-fueled evaporator and turned into maple syrup. Many students in grades three through six participate in an after school maple sugaring club.
