Department of Geology/Geography
In the teaching areas, Les continues to lead field trips to
various parts of the state that are enjoyed by students of all
ages. The trip to the western part of the state went to Galena
and included visiting a lead mine, the Mississippi Palisades, the City
of Galena, Grant’s Home and the business home of John Deere at Grand
Detour, Illinois. The field trip to southwestern Illinois gave
students a taste of the French connection. That field trip began
at the old Capitol at Vandalia and continued to Cahokia Mounds,
Menard’s Home, Fort De Chartres, Menard Prison, Fountain Bluff, and
Giant City State Park.
Les Stoner greatly enjoys teaching and last year was no exception. On a personal note his family grew by one Dalmatian and by Jessica Two Straws. Jessi is a horse.
