A VERY SPECIAL GEOLOGY EVENT AT DISTANT HILL!
David Howell, retired USGS geologist and Stanford University professor emeritus, will join us for his fifth geology talk at Distant Hill Gardens. The event will begin at 10am on Saturday, September 1, with a brief overview by David of the geological origins of the topography of the area, followed by a guided tour of the mile-long Geology Trail at Distant Hill Gardens.
The Geology Trail features a half dozen sites, including two stretched pebble outcroppings, two domes of pegmatite, a cliff and talus slope, a siltstone/sandstone outcrop, an example of a turbidite channel, and a knoll of calcium rich lime-silicate granulite.
(Not sure what all these esoteric geology terms mean? No problem. David will explain them to you in easy to understand terminology.)
