Geology Hiking Series: Great Black Swamp

Hike through time and explore what the rocks and sediment of the Toledo area have to tell us about the geologic history of our home. Search for fossilized sea critters from an ancient inland sea, explore sand dunes and remnants of the Great Black Swamp, and Each week will explore a different time period in the rocks preserved at different Metroparks.
