Flume Gorge

Flume Gorge is a natural gorge that extends 800 feet at the base of Mount Liberty with Conway granite walls that rise to a height of 70 to 90 feet spaced 12 to 20 feet apart. The formation of the Flume began nearly 200 million years ago in Jurassic times. Conway granite that was deeply buried molten rock cooled and fractured. Dikes of basalt that came from deep within the Earth were forced up along the fractures. The overlying rock and basalt dikes eroded away creating a deepening valley where the gorge is now.

One single tree can provide the oxygen required for two human beings and over 8,000 sheets of paper. Trees can also clean the soil and air by absorbing harmful pollutants. So what have you done for a tree lately? Nature centers and state parks provide a hands-on environment to discover facts about native plants and animals, as well as ways to preserve these natural resources.
