Students from Pinnacle and Beacon schools look on as they learn how sap is boiled for syrup.

Students from Greenwich Education Group schools, Pinnacle and Beacon, recently participated in a program on maple sugaring at the Stamford Museum and Nature Center.

The students learned about the seasonal cycle that causes maple trees to produce sugar, as well as the different methods used to extract and process the sap.

Perhaps Beacon fifth grader, Cordelia McKenna of Greenwich, put it best, saying, “The Maple Sugaring program was a really fun first-hand experience on how what is put on my waffles every morning is made.”
