Niagara Falls Earth Science
Niagara Falls Earth Science
Niagara Falls is one of the natural wonders of the world and offers a great place for Earth Science studies. On average, more than 4 million cubic feet of water falls over the crest line every minute. It is the most powerful waterfall in North America and illustrates spectacular examples of erosion, glaciations, uplifting, weathering and deposition. Expert nature guides lead a hike to the bottom of the gorge and back to a point where the falls were located long ago to point out these effects.

CTA groups will thrill at the rush of water tumbling over the brink as we glide over the gorge on a cable car. We will be able to collect marine fossils in a nearby dried lake bed, explore the river rapids from shoreline boardwalks and in powerful jet boats, hike through the tunnels behind the Falls and witness the full fury of the Falls from the deck of The Maid of the Mist. But nothing can compare to the excitement of nearly going over the Falls with the help of the virtual experience of a heart-pounding IMAX film. Other great attractions at Niagara Falls include the Discovery Center, Goat Island and the Cave of the Winds.

Perhaps your tour will include a day trip to Toronto and the fascinating Ontario Science Center, the world-class Metro Zoo, or the Herkimer Diamond Mines where everyone can become a prospector and keep the treasures they find.
