Quarry Field Day
Posted on August 17th, 2015
On July 10th, Grove Stone & Sand Co. hosted a Quarry Field Day for the public and The Colburn Earth Science Museum. Our outdoor education center, which opened over a decade ago, hosts field trips for school groups and geologist organizations interested in learning about North Carolina environmental studies. The education center site includes nature trails, a stream study, wildlife preserve, butterfly gardens, and interactive educational materials. Visitors also learn about the quarry and Earth Science including mineralogy and the formation of the Appalachian Mountains.
The Quarry Field Day event was sold out and participants really enjoyed the stream study as well as the quarry tour. Contact us if you are interested in bringing your group out to the quarry for a field day!
