GEOLOGY OF MOUNT HOPE CEMETERY
Saturday, Sept. 29
at 11 a.m.

Meet:
North Gatehouse, 791 Mount Hope Avenue, opposite Robinson Dr.


Admission:
$10 per person. Free for members and children under 16 accompanied by a paying adult.
Tour Guide: Dr. Rory Cottrell

Mount Hope Cemetery is a collection of hills and glens left behind by the last ice sheets that once covered the area.  But there is more to the geological make-up of the Cemetery than just holes and hills: the stone used to make the markers and monuments tell their own tale about New York State going back more than 400 million years.

Join us for a walking tour to explore the unique landscape and geologic history of New York as depicted in Mount Hope Cemetery. Your tour guide is U of R research scientist and geologist Dr. Rory Cottrell.
