Maple syrup trip was wonderful (04/14/2014)
From: Teresa Schumaker and Matt Feuerhelm

Dear Sara Grover and the staff at Whitewater State Park,

Thank you for sharing your excitement about the process of making maple syrup with our St. Stanislaus Elementary third grade. Your history lesson about the legend of how the first Native Americans discovered maple syrup and how this information was passed on to the early settlers hit home with our classes, as we have just finished reading Laura Ingalls Wilder’s book, “Little House in the Big Woods.” We also appreciated how you led the students through the steps, allowing them a ‘hands-on’ approach, consisting of selecting the proper tree, measuring the tree for the right amount of taps, drilling the hole, tapping in the spile, and finally, collecting the sap. Your encouraging words of how anyone could make their own maple syrup were not wasted. We have several students who have tapped their own maple trees and are looking forward to the taste of real maple syrup. Even if the temperatures are now too warm to gather enough maple sap to make syrup this year, those students will think of doing this again next year, and all of our students will always remember their special time in March at Whitewater State Park.
