Hike: Geologic History of Buck Hill

 Saturday, August 19th

Lower Pool Parking Lot

 Meet at 9:30 a.m.

The rock layers exposed on the walls of the Upper and Lower Falls are like chapters of a great novel containing important insights about our planet’s history  in this case, a chapter about the Appalachians several hundred million years ago. Jeff Fox will offer his insights about the geologic history of Buck Hill on an amble along the Falls. Fox received his PhD from Columbia University, spent 42 months at sea in pursuit of Earth’s secrets, and for almost 40 years has worked in academia at SUNY Albany, Graduate School of Oceanography, University of Rhode Island, and Texas A&M University. He also served as Director of Science Operations for a series of international science programs that had as a goal to read the record of Earth’s history.
