Ely Field Naturalists introduce: Ely Self-Guided Geology Tour

March 14, 2018 | 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

A Guide to Ely’s Geologic Features

Each geologic site in the guide will be presented along with an accompanying brochure.  The idea for this guide was conceived by Calvin Herrala as one of the Age to Age projects started last year.  This self-guided activity will enable young members of the community to share the geologic sites they pass every day with residents and non-residents of all ages.

Bedrock and glacial deposits lie beneath the snow at this time of year, but within two months, the Ely Area will be snow-free and ready for appreciation. Then anyone can pick up this guide and use it to guide others.  Walking, biking, skate-boarding or driving will lead to landmarks that tell the story of the town.  Maybe after visiting these public places, someone will invite you over to see the bedrock floor in their basement.

Ely’s Pillow Rock may be just the beginning of discovery.
