Mining History Hike

When: October 23, 2022
  2:00 pm Sunday
Where: Soldiers Delight NEA
How Much: FREE, Donations welcome!

Join Volunteer Ranger and mining historian Johnny Johnsson on a Mining History Hike to the historic Choate chromium mine. The history of mining in Soldiers Delight will be supplemented by a demonstration of mining artifacts. Participants will have an opportunity to pan and buddle chrome sands (kind of like panning for gold). This program is a great family program for ages 10 and up; parents are welcome.

Those who can only walk a short distance can drive part of the way, park, and then take a short walk over uneven terrain to the Choate Mine entrance where most of the program is conducted. Please call 410-461-5005 in advance to register and 410-833-5508 to obtain more information. The program will be limited to 25 participants. Only offered twice a year!
