Students and teachers at Broomfield Heights Middle School, with assistance from the Geological Society of America, have created a marvelous self-guided walk in an open field to the west of the school. A scale model of geologic time, this 600-foot long, loop path represents the most recent 600 million years of earth’s history using rock samples, drawings and interpretive signs.
The walk features a series of stations, each of which includes a student illustrated exhibit sign that describes the geologic scene, creatures that inhabited the area, and the geology of a large, adjacent boulder of a representative local rock formation for that period of geologic history.
At certain times of the year, student-led tours may be available.
