Explore the geology of Mount Grant Preserve! Local geologist, Julia Turney, will lead an interpretive walk up the Mount Grant access road, stopping to look at rock exposures and geologic features. Over the course of the walk, Julia will unearth the general geology of the San Juan Islands, the geologic history of Mount Grant Preserve, and the most recent glacial geology that shaped the terrain seen today.
Note: the mile walk to the summit includes a 500’ elevation gain.
This free event is presented by San Juan County Land Bank and the San Juan Preservation Trust.
