Wetumpka Crater Tours
Hosted by The Wetumpka Crater Commission and the City of Wetumpka
Feb. 25, 26 and 27, 2016
Times: 8:30 AM, 9:45 AM, 11:00 AM, 12:30 PM

What is the Wetumpka Impact Crater?

Wetumpka, Alabama sits right on the bullís eye of the greatest natural disaster in Alabamaís history. The hills just east of downtown are the eroded remains of a five-mile-wide impact crater that was blasted into the bedrock of what is now Elmore County.

On Saturday, February 27th, the Crater Tours will be one hour and a half each, starting at 8:30 am, with van transportation provided.  The tour is divided into two parts, first, a video and orientation, followed by the van tour.  Total cost of both parts of the tour including a guidebook is $20 for adults, $10 for children up to 12, accompanied by an adult.  (Not recommended for very small children.)  You can attend only the lecture and the charge is $5, with children up to age 12, admitted free.  Additional guidebooks can be purchased for $5, if available.

 

Lectures begin at 8:30 am, 9:45 am, 11:00 am & 12:30 pm.  The van tours will load immediately following the lecture.  

Each year the Wetumpka Impact Crater Commission and City of Wetumpka sponsor several Crater events, a Thursday evening public lecture by Dr David King Jr., Friday school tours and Saturday public tours of the Crater.

Dr. King will conduct the free public lecture on the science of the Crater on February 25th at 7:00pm in the Wetumpka Civic Center, Main Street. This is an excellent opportunity to hear how scientists have proven the size and scope of the impact and get an update on Dr Kingís most recent research related to the crater.


Call the City of Wetumpka to reserve your space on the tours! 334-567-5147
or for more information visit the City of Wetumpka's webpage.
