20-21: Geology Rocks
The mineral wealth and natural beauty of West Virginia owe much to geologic processes that began eons ago. Without geological processes, there would be no rocks, rivers, coal, oil or gas, minerals, or scenic beauty; indeed there would be no mountains in the Mountain State. Ken Ashton presents a slide show presentation Thursday evening. This earth science program format is a hands-on activity for scout, 4-H groups, families and future geologist. No charge – open to the public. Friday morning, join Ken for a guided hike along the Blackwater River Trail.Event Flyer
