Join the Welty Environmental Center at Big Hill Park to learn more about the lives of rocks, including the glacial outwash that created Big Hill. We will hike down to the old quarry and explore the sediment layers. We will also learn about the people who lived in Big Hill Park and built the Model-T retaining wall of one of Big Hill’s more traveled paths.
