Earth Science Week: Sunday at the Quarry
As part of national Earth Science Week, the public is invited to an event at the Raymond Quarry to learn about rocks, minerals and Iowa geology. Participants can collect rocks, minerals, fossils and learn about the natural resources in the state, including the limestone industry. Faculty and students from the Department of Earth Science will be on hand to provide information about rocks and minerals. Also participating will be personnel from Iowa Geological Survey, IOWATER, and the Black Hawk County Gem and Mineral Society.
