On Wednesday, May 17, 2017, Stoneco of Michigan hosted the Ida Elementary School at their Ottawa Lake quarry.
The day began with a full tour of the quarry followed by lunch and an information presentation about construction aggregates. The day wrapped up with a souvenir rock hunt.
This annual event has quickly become one of the school’s favorite outings as Stoneco has developed a program that is both educational and informative. Over the years Stoneco has taught not only the numerous students but also the teachers about the many benefits for mining.
