Appreciate New York State’s beautifully diverse landscape on a deeper level during your next road trip or visit to a local park! This class will dust off that grade school rock cycle knowledge, examine fossils, and fathom moving continents and mile-thick ice sheets to understand the unifying, billion-year geologic story behind the state’s natural features, including rugged Adirondack and Catskill peaks; long Finger Lakes; deep Genesee gorges; sandy Long Island beaches; sculpted Bristol and Allegheny hills; imposing Central Park boulders; voluminous waterfalls; and much more!
The recommended age for this class is 12+.
