Heard Event

Spring Break Mini Camps

Event Date: March 14, 2024
Start Time: 9:30 am
End Time: 12:00 pm

Most of the changes to our Earth’s surface happen gradually through weathering and erosion or tectonic plate movement. But some changes are instantaneous! In this mini-camp, we’ll use the GeoGlobe to take a look at plate boundaries & movements and the geological processes that create volcanoes and earthquakes. Then we’ll head outside to discover the geological features of the Heard’s sanctuary. **Hands-on volcano activity involved!!**

Each mini-camp explores a different topic, a hike on the sanctuary, a live animal visitor (no contact), and a take-home project. Preregistration required. Participants should dress for the weather and wear closed-toe shoes suitable for walking on uneven gravel. Participants may wish to bring water in a carrier. Pre-registration is required. Learn More
