The Thursday, July 6 tour has sold out, but we will be offering a second tour, Wednesday, August 9. Have you ever wondered how old the rocks under your feet are? Or why gold is found here? Find out the answers to these questions and more during a special walking tour focused on downtown Juneauís geology led by emerita Professor of Geology Dr. Cathy Connor and retired geological engineer Mike Blackwell. The tour will highlight the general geology of downtown and how this geology has influenced our downtown development and history.
