Due to it being such a cold and snowy winter, we were not able to tap the maple trees until now. So, with drills, buckets, and taps in hand, the eighty Allendale Columbia Middle School students plus teachers and Pat Sadler from WoodWise Land Management ventured out into the twenty degree weather on Saint Patrick’s Day to tap over thirty trees on campus. Excitement filled the air despite the lack of green outdoors.
The weather forecast is looking very good for a run of sap in the coming weeks. Upper thirties to forties during the day and twenties at night. Perfect weather! Stay tuned for updates on our adventures.
