Naturalist Walk : Geology of the Highlands

September 21 at 8:30 am - 10:00 am

with Fred Oswald

Come shake off the week with this Saturday morning hike! Diverse and impressive rock formations are found along the Highlands Center trails. Phyllite, conglomerates, intrusive dikes, and even the banded iron formation are all found within a comfortable walking distance from the James Learning Center.  In this Naturalist-lead walk, visit some of these impressive formations, learn how they were formed, how to identify them, and much more!
Note: This walk does involve walking over uneven surfaces so that rocks can be viewed. Please plan accordingly.

This week, there will be a BONUS WALK in the Discovery Gardens at 11:00 on Rainwater Harvesting.

Program is FREE.
