GEO-DC Begins Niagara Escarpment Tours

This summer, GEO-DC will host tours to explore Door County’s famous natural corridor: the Niagara Escarpment.

The first tour, The Birds Return to the Bluffs, will be held June 12, 8-10 am, at The Clearing in Ellison Bay and is good for all levels of experience. Professional naturalist Paul Regnier will lead curious birders in learning about the spring migration near the escarpment. The cost is $20 per person, and the hike will be limited to 20 participants. In case of inclement weather, it will be held June 13.

The second tour, The Rocks Speak, is a Northern Door trolley tour with Professor Emeritus Charles Shabica and Bob Bultman, an avid caver and longtime member of the Niagara Escarpment Resource Network. It will be held Aug.11, 2-6 pm, when they’ll explore the geological features and beaches of the Niagara Escarpment. The cost of the tour is $45 per person, and it’s limited to 20 participants.
