Facility:Big Brutus, Inc.
Description:Preschoolers and elementary students will love this field trip. It is a kind of a "Mike & Mary Anne the Steam Shovel" story, only this Giant Shovel is named Big Brutus.

Big Brutus put the oooohs and aaahs in the backyard of the Heartlands!!! Miles before you reach this retired giant you can see it on the horizon south of West Mineral, Kansas. Standing beside it makes one aware of how fragile he or she is.

There is more to Big Brutus than cold steel and long shadows falling across the Mined Land Wildlife Area. Big Brutus is not just a symbol of the past, but an eternal tribute to the mining heritage of Southeast Kansas and to miners all across this nation who toiled to support their families.
