STUDENTS: Field Trip- Moaning Caverns

Did you know Moaning Cavern holds the largest vertical chamber in a public cavern that you can see in California? In fact, its so big, it could hold the entire Statue of Liberty from toes to torch! Join us Friday, September 29, 2017 as we follow our guide through well-lighted marble passages into the magnificent natural wonder. Descending down 235 steps to a depth of 165 feet below the surface, the tour ends on the spot where scientific excavations revealed the bones of prehistoric people who had fallen into the cavern thousands of years ago. Permission slips are available in the counseling office. Space is very limited- Mrs. O'Brien
