Downtown Geology Tour

May 18 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Through generous funding from Mountain Sports Flagstaff and 1% for the Planet, Willow Bend offers guided Downtown Geology Tours. The 45 minute- 1 hour walking tours are based on local Flagstaff author, Marie Jackson’s Stone Landmark’s book. An exclusive and unique opportunity for the community to explore downtown like never before. The tour will cover ancient history of stones used to build downtown’s iconic buildings, including Moenkopi Sandstone, Pumiceous Dacite, Kaibab Limestone, and Malapais Basalt. In addition tours will highlight progression of architectural styles, discuss changing preferences for certain rock types, and provide an overview of historic events. Tours are highly recommended for visitors and residents alike.
