Rocks Rock! Open House
Rockcitement continues on Friday, July 19, from 2:00-3:00 p.m., when the Wilderness Center staff returns to Rodman with a program for children, grades 2-6. Families will learn about rocks by investigating, on their own, the different stations on the rock tour. Younger children are welcome at this event, with adult assistance reading and following station directions. Participants should plan on 30-45 minutes to complete the tour.
