This March, Sara Cawthon and her student helpers tapped sugar maples around campus to fill metal buckets with translucent watery sap. Bowdoin’s video intern, Sean Martin, recently caught campus reactions to the sweet stuff as Cawthon demonstrated on Coe Quad how to boil the sap down into maple syrup for the dining halls.
