Keg was thrilled to help out organizer Zena Ryder with an ask a geologist hike. Geologist James Barr toured more than 40 people through Gallagher's Canyon in Scenic Canyon Regional Park in Kelowna on Saturday October 19th. The kids were able to get their rocks identified before they all toured the canyon looking at rock formations.
