About the event
We are so excited to announce of our very first geological tour of the burial ground!
Join Haley Gannon, geology major and rock fanatic, for a wooded hike through the burial ground in search of rock outcrops and more. Haley's relationship to local geology is infused with knowledge, experience, and heart. She will provide an overview of rock types and textures, how to identify them, and what it all means. She will offer a brief geological history of Appalachia, some of the details of which will astound you! All while teaching you tools and field methods for identifying rocks as you walk!
Haley has lived in the Charlottesville area since 2016. She is a graduate of William & Mary where she studied geology. She has immersed herself in geology since her graduation and has attended the Virginia Geological Field Conference numerous times. She considers herself a local nerd who loves hands-on outdoor education. And she is thrilled to share her love and knowledge of rocks with the PNB community.
We so hope you can join us for this sure-to-be educational event.
