Take an educational trip into the anthracite coal fields of Schuylkill County on Sunday, Oct. 8, 2017.  Tour No. 9 Mine and Museum in Lansford for a trip back in time to see how deep mining was done.  We’ll also see several abandoned mining sites and learn how local organizations are working to clean up the impacts remaining from over a century of mining.

Participants will meet the bus at the Schuylkill County Ag Center on the Gordon Nagle Trail.  The cost for the tour is $18/person and includes lunch and admission to No. 9 Mine and Museum.  Seating is limited so register today.  To register contact Lorie Reichert at 570-391-3316 or lreichert@county.schuylkill.pa.us.
