New Meetup: Geology of the C&O Canal

From: Lori

Announcing a new Meetup for nature lovers' meetup!

What: Geology of the C&O Canal

When: August 24,[masked]:00 AM

Where: Click the link below to find out!

Meetup Description: Come explore the geology of the C&O canal with a local geology professor who is working on a book on this subject.

The Potomac Conservancy is organizing this event. Here is their description:
We may not have the Rockies in our back yard, but we have the
roots of mountains that were as high as the Alps. Although
local earthquakes are rare now, this area broke in two twice
and an ocean flowed in. The C&O Canal's geology tells a story
as fascinating as any place on the planet. Callan Bentley will
use rock evidence to deduce geologic history of our region.

Note: This event was already posted as a note on our site. Since I am planning to go, I decided to make it an all-out "event". Due to a wedding at noon, I cannot stay afterwards, but perhaps others may decide to linger along the canal.
