The Hidden Lore of Gravel | With Dustin Clayton

July 16, 2022
10:00AM to 12:30PM
Botna Bend Park

Join Dustin Clayton by the banks of the West Nishnabotna river for a discussion centering on the rocks, minerals, and fossils common to western Iowa. We'll discuss the geological events that have shaped the landscape around us and how the rocks and stones present in the rivers, streams, and gravel beds of our region came to be there. We'll also talk about how people have interacted with the mineral world over time and the very long relationship humans have had with flints, cherts, and quartzes. From tools to talismans, we'll examine stones in myth and legend. There will be a walk along the river (weather and river conditions permitting) and a demonstration of stone tool making.

Ages 16+ please. $12 per person. Park entry fee included in registration. Please meet at Olsen Lodge.
