Guam - We Are Guahan is hosting a free tour of the Northern Aquifer on Saturday at 8am. Anyone wishing to join the bus and walk tour is asked to meet at the University of Guam's College of Natural and Applied Sciences. The six-hour tour includes visits to Mount Alutom, the Dededo Coral Pit and Quarry, Mount Santa Rosa and South Pacific Peace Park and Mataguac Hill.
We Are Guahan's Marie Auyong, says the tour will help the public better grasp possible effects of the military buildup. "We really want to make this tour accessible to the general public," she explained. "We feel that the public needs to have good data about the effects of the buildup on our natural resources, so it's really important to make this accessible to everybody."
Guests should bring a bag lunch and snack. Tour leaders suggest participants be at least 10 years old.
