More than 16,000 visited Michels Materials limestone quarry in Neenah, Wisconsin, last month to attend the 15th annual Quarry Quest, according to a report from PostCrescent.com.
The event, which took place September 14, featured family-friendly activities such as working the controls on cranes, loaders and backhoes; boom lift rides; concrete production demonstrations; brick-and-mortar wall construction; treasure hunts; jewelry crafting; and mining for pyrite.
Quarry Quest raised $130,000 to benefit children’s charities in the area and the Quarry Quest Environmental Fund, which awards grants for supplies, activities and field trips to help students learn about earth science, geology and construction.
