The junior class from Columbus Catholic recently took a field trip to The Bywater, a 40-acre forest, where they learned about the maple syrup process. Mr. Jevaltas, the owner of the forest and a maple syrup hobbyist, teaches Literature at Columbus Catholic High School. As part of the field trip, students wrote nature reflections in a log cabin on the property. We identified trees and participated in a series of team-building activities. Students enjoyed doing all the different team building activities. They added a fun physical aspect to the day that was already intellectually stimulating.
This is the 36th year that Mr. Jevaltas has taken students of varying ages to his property providing them with this unique, educational experience.
