Oakland Cemetery Rocks!
Presented by Historic Oakland Foundation
Oakland Cemetery Rocks! Join cemetery preservationists for a hands-on geology workshop and cemetery scavenger hunt. Learn how to identify several stone types, see how the preservation of monuments and grave markers takes place, and find out how the elements affect different types of stone. Following the workshop, use your best sleuthing skills on the geology scavenger hunt to find the different types of stones and materials around the site.
