Second Saturdays: Rock Rock Rockin’ Around the Canyon

This past Second Saturdays event was all about geology!  The day focused on rocks, what they’re made of, and why we love them!  Geology is a very important subject to us because the entire canyon is made up of Decomposed Granite that dates back to the age of the dinosaurs!  Without rocks, the park wouldn’t be the same.

Visitors got to make their own granite ingredient bracelets as we talked about minerals (the building blocks of rocks) and rocks!  If you missed this event, don’t worry, there’s another fun event going on next month!
