Mendon Ponds Park is one of the country’s most unique parks and it is right in our backyard! Herman LeRoy Fairchild, Professor Emeritus in the Geology Department at the University of Rochester, first advocated in 1926 for the "Mendon Kames" area to be developed into a state or county park. Two years later, Monroe County began the first of what would become many land purchases to ultimately create the glacial topographic wonder that is known today as Mendon Ponds Park. The Fairchild Walking Tours will cover the history of the park, its glacial formation and geological features such as kettles, kames and eskers. Join us to explore this geological wonder! Small groups will be formed. “Hidden in Plain Sight” is relatively flat. "Mero-What?" and includes steep, rocky inclines. Must be in good physical health. 90-minute Tours. Age 16 & up. Registration is required.
