Collecting, Filtering, and Storing – oh, my!

What a busy day! After tapping 33 trees yesterday, the students were busy collecting today’s sap. They never cease to be amazed at the amount of sap their trees produce. Later some of the students used a funnel, metal filter, and cheesecloth to filter unwanted particles from their collected sap before storing their sap in the refrigerator to keep it fresh until they collect enough for our upcoming boiling/evaporating day.

The middle school students and faculty would like to thank the kitchen staff for their support in this project. Without their help it would be very difficult to keep all of our sap fresh. Thank you!


About bguzzetta

I am a middle school math and science teacher at Allendale Columbia School. Technology and the outdoors are integral parts of my curriculum. I love outdoor activities, which I enjoy with my family. I have always felt that students should be exposed to global research, and am very excited to be bringing this to my students with the support of school. Therefore, I have embarked on a journey that includes a collaboration between myself, the Seneca Park Zoo, the Smithsonian Institute, and National Geographic's photographer David Liittschwager. Sports have always been part of my life, and I am the current Girls Vice President for the Rochester District Youth Soccer League.
