Learning about geology, protecting our drinking water, mineral resources, environmental geology, land surveying, dam safety, illegal dumping, and more!
As usual, we had a wonderful time when more than 350 Rolla 5th grade students visited our campus near the end of the school year. Students learned about careers in geology, land surveying and other areas of expertise with the Missouri Department of Natural Resources. We have partnered with the Rolla Middle School for a number of years to help educate Rolla 5th grade students about careers, environmental stewardship and wise use of our natural resources. Check out photos from the day. Thanks to Jeannie Strain at Rolla Middle School for helping coordinate the effort each year and to Shannon Beck (Rolla Daily News reporter) for taking photos and publishing several in the newspaper and online.
We invite you to visit our Ed Clark Museum of Missouri Geology. We are open for self-guided tours weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. We are located at 111 Fairgrounds Road in Rolla, Missouri. Admission is free. –Joe
