Here’s a chance to finally learn the difference between stalactites and stalagmites once and for all.

James City County Parks & Recreation is organizing a group trip to Luray Caverns for March 6, according to a press release from the department.

Luray Caverns is the largest natural caverns in the eastern U.S.

A group with James City County Parks & Recreation will embark on a self-guided tour of the caverns and take in the natural rock formations.

“You’ll discover the geological history behind this trove of natural wonders, encompassing columns, stalactites, stalagmites and mirrored pools,” the press release said.

The trip is open to people age 13 and older. Registration is $45 and must be completed by Feb. 24. Those who wish to attend can register on the James City County website or by calling 757-259-4200.

The group will leave from the James City County Recreation Center, 5301 Longhill Road, on March 6 at 7 a.m. and will return by 6 p.m. Travelers are expected to bring their own lunch.
