Geology Field Trip


September 14, 2019

Lewis & Clark Caverns State Park, 25 Lewis & Clark Caverns Rd, Cardwell

Lewis & Clark Caverns State Park encompasses over 3,000 acres of rich geologic history. Gain insight into a whole new side of the park on this field trip through the hills surrounding the park. Although the London Hills are relatively young, their upheaval exposed tales of the past dating back over a billion years. Discover stories of mountains being thrusted up from flat plains, inland seas teeming with life, and volcanoes blanketing everything in thick ash. Unveil secrets previously buried deep underground and understand why geologists far and wide come to study the rocks of the park.
