What We'll Do

Have you ever wondered why some rocks are green or pink or gray? Or why there are pebbles within rocks? Or asked what living things were present during their formation? On this 1:30 min online walk around the beautiful Kinross Pond in Kirkland Lake Ontario, you will find answers to these questions and know more about the secrets of these 2.6 Billion years old rocks. We will talk about why these Canadian Shield rocks are considered incredibly special and examine some unique details in the features of each rocks. We will also explore how they come about. Before we begin our walk, we will draw a rock and exchange our experiences and interest at the lawn of Kinross Pond Park or at the Museum of Northern History (Facebook @museumKL) if Covid restrictions will be lifted. There is no book or brochure for this experience. Our walk will be your book with your experiences at each rock samples and outcrops as the pages. As we stop, you can touch and examine each one of them and learn from the context of the story. Finally, just like many of stories, we will finish it on a positive note: a good ending. We will gather for a few minutes, improve the rock that we drew: add some details from the experience you just had and share our experiences and your insights of the walk.
