Schist and Ice

Come learn a bit about regional geology while walking down to Pitcher Brook. Along the way we'll get a basic introduction to the different types of rocks and how they form, followed by a closer inspection and discussion of the rocks exposed near the falls. If there's time, we'll stop to visit a glacial erratic on the way back, taking a quick look at the more recent geologic history of the area.
