Additional Virtual Junior Ranger Activities
Learn How Yukon Geology Rocks
Take a quick look at the pictures on the Geology Down the Yukon Guide. The layers in the rocks are so big compared to the people floating in the picture to the right! Because many of the rocks in the preserve are sedimentary rocks, try the experiment below to visualize how some sedimentary rocks were formed.
Rock Experiment instructions:
Good job with your rockin' experiment! Now that we can imagine how these rocks were formed now we have to imagine where they were formed. Even though the Yukon River can form sedimentary rocks like this over time, the river did not form the rocks you can see as you float in its waters. Many of the rock formations that you see along the Yukon River were actually formed a really long time ago in the bottom of the ocean!
