Nature All Season: Geology of the Pioneer Valley
Join us for an in-depth natural history course to develop your naturalists skills. Each month, in our series of nature explorations with different local naturalists, we explore a focused, seasonal, natural history topic. We’ll look at nature in new ways, from broad habitat perspectives to close details of individual species. Over the course of the year we’ll visit a variety of natural habitats in the greater Pioneer Valley area. Identification skills, ecological connections, adaptations, and life cycles of organisms will be the focus of our observations. Bring your curiosity and observation skills. Dress for the weather for 3 hours as we rarely cancel due to inclement weather. Bring binoculars and a hand lens, water and snacks if you would like. These will be outdoor only programs and please bring masks and plan to wear them when within 6 feet of others. Sunday, November 29, 9am-12pm Join us on a walk through time! Come and explore the earth-shaping history of the Pioneer Valley as Steve delves into geologic processes and the ways in which land and humans interact and affect one another. Steve Roof, professor of earth and environmental science, focuses his research and teaching on environmental issues such as climate change, pollution, and land conservation.
