Mount Carmel Area students Kristopher Kalvarchick, Jackson Gensemear, Alannah Chapman and Robert Watkins focused while studying at the forestry station at Tuesday’s Susquehanna Valley Middle School Envirothon.

WASHINGTONVILLE — From tapping into a tree to extract maple sugar, to boiling the product down and enjoying the taste, students from four counties received a lesson on the process of making maple syrup during an educational day held Tuesday for middle school students.

Students from 10 schools, and one home-schooled group, participated in the 21st annual Susquehanna Valley Middle School Envirothon, held at the Montour Preserve. Maple sugaring was one of several stations students visited as part of their day of environmental education.
