Event Description
Are you fascinated by rocks? Intrigued by anticlines? Captivated by fault lines?

On Sunday, Dec. 1 at 9 a.m., you can join naturalist Jill Vance for a free, three-hour driving tour of Monroe Lake’s geology. Stops will highlight the Mt. Carmel Fault, Leesville Anticline, Edwardsville Formation, Harrodsburg Limestone and the Salem Limestone.

Vance will explain these geological features, including what they tell us about the area’s past, and how they influenced our present landscape. The tour is recommended for ages 16 and older.

Registration is required by Nov. 25 and is limited to 15 people. Sign up by emailing jvance@dnr.IN.gov your name, phone number and number of people in your group, or call the Paynetown Activity Center at (812) 837-9967.

Participants will meet Vance at the Monroe Lake office at the entrance to Paynetown State Recreation Area, 4850 S. State Road 446, Bloomington.

The tour will end at the southeast end of the lake, next to SR. 37. Participants should expect to spend time outside at each stop, and some walking will be required.

Monroe Lake (stateparks.IN.gov/2954.htm) is at 4850 South State Road 446, Bloomington, 47401.
