Have you ever wondered how the rugged beauty of Canmore’s mountainous landscape came to be, or how the landscape has shaped the town? Get to know the science behind the area where they live and play a little better with geologist Percy Strong. Their geology and mining walking tour will give insight into the geology of the rugged Rocky Mountains and explore the geology and history of the Canmore No. 1 and No. 2 coal mines. The tour is 3 hours in length; tour participants will first meet at the Canmore Museum. Visitors are encouraged to wear comfortable walking shoes and wear layered summer walking clothes. Bottled water will be supplied. Carpooling will be required. Hosted as part of the museum’s ongoing exhibit, Survival In Paradise: Coal Mining in the Bow Valley.
