1-HOUR CAVERN TOUR
This tour is specially geared toward students. An experienced guide will lead your group through 1/2 mile of cavern passageway containing formations, waterfalls, and giant domes. Don’t worry, there are no narrow spaces or staircases on our tour! Your students will learn about cave formation and geology, and about the Native Americans, soldiers, and outlaws who have used the cave. The guide will also teach your group about the bats that live inside the cave and why they are important to our ecosystem. You may even get to see bats up close! If you want a certain aspect of geology, history, or creation to be highlighted for your group, simply let us know.
Teachers lead the way on a nature walk through the woods full of activities and points of interest. Your students will learn about local flora, fauna, fossils, and rocks and minerals. At the end of the trail, each student will receive a good luck wooden nickel that entitles him or her to a free return trip to the cavern.
One of our trained guides will instruct your students about semi-precious stones found both around the world and right here in Arkansas. Each student will receive a bag of rough and pan for over 20 kinds of gemstones, keeping everything he or she finds. The gemstones will be placed in individually marked bags and stored in a complimentary teacher’s tote bag to take home. We will include a class set of gemstone identification cards so you can play “Rock Bingo” with your students back at school. This activity is a fun and educational way to supplement your students’ learning.
Our gift shop is stocked with hundreds of kid-appropriate items at affordable prices; your students will be delighted to see how far a few dollars will go! Our friendly staff will help students browse the shop, add up their totals, and count back change. We’ll put each student’s purchase in an individual sack and keep them all in a complimentary teacher’s tote bag to bring safely back to school, so they don’t get lost.
