Sugar Bush Visit a “Sweet” Field Trip for Corpus Christi Students

Corpus Christi students from teacher Daniela Visentin’s grade 2/3 class had the opportunity to visit the Despatie Sugar Bush farm in Hanmer recently. The students learned about sap collection and how maple syrup is made. The class was able to walk right into the bush to see the buckets collecting the sap, and then visited the sugar shack to observe the process of making maple syrup. The best part of the day way the chance to roll the hot syrup on the snow with their popsicle sticks allowing them the chance to enjoy their maple treat.
