Guided Walk: A Pebble’s Journey

November 19, 2022 at 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Take a walk on wooded trails with a Highlands Center geology guide to learn the amazing story of one single “tortured” pebble, now “frozen” in a wall of rock, known as Stretch Pebble Conglomerate. Follow the billion-year travels of this special stone from a lofty volcano to the bottom of an ancient ocean up to where we see it today, a mile above sea level. These walks are on the unpaved trails on the Highlands Center’s 80-acre campus. These trails are rocky and have short, but occasionally steep, inclines. Make sure to bring water, wear appropriate hiking shoes, dress in protective layers, and wear sun protection. This is a free program. RSVP is appreciated but not required.
