Join The Conservation Foundation’s President/CEO Brook McDonald on a vigorous 2-mile hike at the Dayton Bluffs Preserve and down a scenic ravine to learn about the site’s geology on Saturday, March 2nd, 9am to Noon at our Dayton Bluffs Preserve near Ottawa.
We will walk through hundreds of millions of years of Earth’s history learning about shale, limestone, coal and sandstone - all sedimentary rock layers from the Paleozoic Era, 250 to 550 million years ago. We will end at the Fox River and then hike back up a steep hill and past 1,000-year-old Native American burial mounds to get back to the current year 2019.
We have reached our 20-person capacity for this hike. If any spaces open up, we will send an email, but we politely ask that if you are not already registered for the hike, please do not come to Dayton Bluffs that morning for safety reasons.
