May 28:Octagon & Beyond Walks.

10 am & 5 pm
Two walks led by Jeff Gill will each start and finish from the public area at Octagon State Memorial, at 33rd St. & Parkview. This will be a 3 mile walk; largely along sidewalks, down alleys and on some uneven ground. Very level. Bring a water bottle and join us on a visit to some remnants and traces of the once four and a half square mile complex; still visible even beyond the Octagon & Observatory Circle itself. The grounds of those geometric enclosures are open to the public for general strolling and viewing from sunrise to sunset that day. We hope to see you there!

Tours of the Great Circle Earthworks and Flint Ridge.
The Newark Earthworks Center employs four trained tour guides (two certified teachers & two Native Americans) who give tours for K-12 classes & other groups.
Admission is $5 per person except for teachers & aids.
Approximately 2, 500 school children participate each year.
