Have you ever wondered what kind of research goes on at Ohio State University’s Stone Laboratory? Want to see Cooke Castle?
Science and History Tours of Gibraltar Island will be held each Wednesday, June 21 through August 9 from 11:00 am. to 1:00 pm. A tour fee of $10 ($5 for children 6−12) supports Stone Lab student scholarships. To get to Gibraltar, meet at the Boardwalk Restaurant Harbor Taxi Landing, 341 Bayview Ave. Put-in-Bay, Ohio at 10:45 a.m. to catch a water taxi at a cost of $6 round trip, payable to the boat driver.
Tour guides lead a walking tour of the island, including Perry’s Lookout, the glacial grooves, Stone Lab buildings, and the outside of Cooke Castle. The second hour will focus on the Lake Erie research currently being conducted at Stone Lab.
Tours are provided on a first-come, first-served basis, with a maximum of 70 people.
You can also schedule a group tour April through November by calling the Stone Lab Office at 419-285-1800.
