Your Connection To the Outdoors

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.

Leaders: Tarin Weiss, Geology Professor WSU, past president of the New England section of the National Association of Geoscience Teachers.
Mike Young, Geology Professor, Westfield State University
