Blue bag mystery explained by KARE 11

Blue bags on the trees surrounding South High have been a mystery to some. We invited KARE 11 to spread the word that the trees are premium maples and the bags are collecting sap--an all in one lesson in chemistry, ecology and culture taught by Vincent Patton of the All Nation's program.

In the final photo, you can see the four small jars that were produced from gallons and gallons of sap.

Thanks to MPS Indian Ed for funding the equipment to tap and make this cultural, science-based lesson possible!
