Journey through the Keweenaw's geology - from the formation of an ancient volcanic rift and its enormous loads of native copper, to the glaciers that uncovered them, and the miners who powered the Keweenaw's thriving copper mining industry. Discover how rocks and minerals are formed and the scientific method to identify them in the field. You will spend most of the week outside, examining geological evidence, mapping ancient lava flows and rock beds, exploring underground mines, collecting samples at old mines and on the beaches of Lake Superior, and sharpening your skills as a geologist! What to bring: You will need comfortable boots or sturdy shoes for walking in semi-wilderness areas, rain gear, a warm jacket or sweater, flashlight, and insect repellent or a long-sleeved shirt.
