Join Volunteer Ranger and mining historian Johnny Johnsson on a two mile Mining History Hike to the historic Choate chromium mine.  The history of mining in Soldiers Delight will be supplemented by demonstration of mining artifacts. Participants will have an opportunity to pan and buddle chrome sands (kind of like panning for gold). This program is a great family program for ages 10 and up; parents are welcome.  Those who can only walk a short distance can drive part of the way, park, and then take a short walk over uneven terrain to the Choate Mine entrance where most of the program is conducted. Please call 410-833-5508 in advance to register or to obtain more information.Only offered twice a year!
