Go on a Geology Quest!

geology questThe 4th and 5th graders of Southwest Charter School have worked hard to create a unique guide to downtown Portland, dubbed the Downtown Portland Geology Quest. This self-guided tour of fourteen downtown Portland buildings is intended to teach curious folks of all ages about the kinds of rock our city’s buildings are made of.

Complete with original artwork drawn by the students, the Quest is more than just a clever educational tool to learn about our fair city’s buildings; if you are a fan of geocaching or scavenger hunts, you will love filling out the clue boxes until you have a complete clue that will lead you to a hidden treasure box!
