Featured Course

Salem limestone (also called Indiana limestone) has been quarried in central Monroe County and used for buildings since the 1800s. In our evening session, we will look at the geology of the county and explore how it was formed. 

On the field trip, we will visit two quarries to see how the limestone is extracted. Then we’ll make stops at additional locations to show the diversity of the geology found in Monroe County and explain why it is different from east to west.
