Stories in Stone: Geology of Shenandoah National Park Seminar - May 13, 2017
Code: SEM2017-7
Price: $40.00
Saturday, May 13, 2017, 9:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., begin at Big Meadows.

The geology of Shenandoah National Park tells an incredible story of earth history that began a billion years ago and continues today.

Underlying the present-day landscape of Shenandoah, are remnants of hot, fiery lavas, explosive volcanic eruptions, and fragments of ancient rivers and oceans.

Come and learn this story with Ranger Sally Hurlbert and discover the amazing tale of oceans being born, continents colliding and mountains being thrust high into the sky. See how these rocks are being changed by the everyday processes of weathering and erosion that break them down and make ideal homes for the flora and fauna of Shenandoah. Learn about some of the impacts that human recreation has on these rocky ecosystems and how the park is taking steps to preserve and protect them for future generations to enjoy.

Seminar includes a 2 mile round trip hike to Little Stony Man Cliffs, moderate difficulty due to rocky terrain and then a stop at Marys Rock Tunnel Overlook.

This seminar is intended for the general public ages 12 and up and space is limited to 20 participants.
