2018 Festival Event:

Rock n’ Walk

Millions of years ago, a massive magma chamber cooled below ground near Atlanta never erupting through to the surface. Now, we call it Stone Mountain. Join GSU Geosciences on a hike to explore this unique granite dome. You can start the hikes or swing by for a hands-on learning session at the visitor center in Confederate Hall where the geologists will explore the history of this notable natural landmark. You’ll also be able to ‘walk’ a Giant Traveling Map of Georgia, engage in activities with rock and mineral specimens, and explore other natural landscapes using Google Cardboard VR. Groups will depart frequently for the guided hike from the Confederate Hall Historical & Environmental Education Center. While you are there, check out the Eco Expedition event as well!
