Rain Rain, Go Away: First Outreach Event for Jewel Cave!

Rain rain, go away, come again another day!

I am used to singing that to myself when the Orioles were at risk of getting rained out. Nowadays, I am singing that while I am in on-site housing with the near-daily thunderstorms. More relevant, I thought the same while we set up our table at Find Your Park Day in Rapid City this past Saturday. Our table provided kids with bat crafts, a nice look at bat anatomy, and a geological sampling of our cave’s surrounding area. Fortunately, the weather cleared up for most of our event, allowing folks to come out and hear about Jewel Cave and all our brilliant formations. I hope to see some of those visiting folks soon on my tours!

Also, while at Find Your Park Day, I was fortunate to run into and meet fellow LHIP intern Gia from Mount Rushmore! Despite being so close geographically, it was enlightening to hear our differing experiences. Along with that positive experience, while guiding a tour, I got a few more photos, which I am happy to share with everyone! I hope everyone is enjoying their internship (or following along with mine) as much as I am!

    I love stalactites!!! Theyre such a neat glimpse into geological history.
