Photos from the 2017 Quarry Tour

More than 500 guests made their way through the Elmhurst Quarry on Sept. 30 on a beautiful fall day. The engineers and ecologists from the DuPage County Stormwater Management team shared many interesting facts and the Museum provided historical information about the quarry. Thanks to everyone who participated, and we look forward to bringing the tours back in 2019!
