The public is invited to learn a story hundreds of millions of years in the making at the upcoming Sheridan Community Land Trust Discovery Session: The Rocky History of Red Grade Trails scheduled for July 29. 

Steve Stresky will draws upon his more than 40 years as a professional geologist and a lifelong passion for adventuring in the Bighorns to teach attendees about the structural evolution of the mountains, the geometry of strata along its flanks, the differences between rock types, their potential for aquifers and how those rock types and aquifers affect the landscape and how it’s used. He’ll also discuss the origin of Red Grade Spring and how such a spring with no seeming source above can form.

Sheridan Community Land Trust asks those who wish to attend to please meet at Base Trailhead Parking Lot on Thursday, June 29, at 6 p.m. The group will hike along the Prairie and Tip of the Woods loops. SCLT suggests attendees bring sturdy footwear and water.
