As part of our extra-curricular activities (yes, we do that), a few members of the PNLab decided to go to the sugar shack (a staple activity here in Montreal). For some of our international lab members, it was their first time EVER attending!!!! The members enjoyed a yummy brunch lathered in maple syrup that left them full and satisfied. They also took a walk on the mountain trail, ate some maple taffy, and had a tour of the site in a tractor-drawn wagon, and spent some time observing the maple syrup making process. It was a lovely and much needed day to re-energise the group and allow them to continue working on their research. Hopefully more activities like this are to come!
