On April 13, 2005, Memphis Stone and Gravel Company (MSG) hosted Ms. Julie Ware and her 3rd grade CLUE class from Snowden Elementary in Memphis. About 25 students and 5 adults attended the plant tour at MSG's Anderson Plant and Green T Plant in Desoto County, MS. The tour started with a lesson in the "Mining Cycle" then participants got to see stripping, mining, processing and reclamation in process. The field trip ended with ample time to collect rocks, minerals, and fossils in the gravel stockpiles. It turned out to be a little chilly and rainy, but that did not stop the fun!
Ms. Julie Ware took the time to write about her groups' experience and submitted an Article to the Commercial Appeal. The Article was featured in the Commercial Appeal's Midtown and Downtown Appeal on June 16, 2005. Thanks Julie! Get Article
