12 DeSoto CavernsChristion Lewis, Gaston Grant, Gabe Heath, Wilson Gray and Martin Lee complete the Lost Trail Maze at DeSoto Caverns in October.
Third grade classes at Bluff Park Elementary visited DeSoto Caverns in Childersburg on Oct. 5. Students went on a walking tour inside the caverns and learned about the history of the caves. While inside, they saw a light show and several different cave formations of stalactites and stalagmites. They also learned about cave hydrology, geology and archeology.
Outside the caverns, students walked through the Butterfly House, tried to find their way through the Lost Trail Maze and panned for gemstones such as onyx, rubies and pyrite.
