Geology Rocks! Program with Jeri Jones

April 7 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Geologist Jeri Jones

In partnership with the Franklin Co. Rock & Mineral Club

Geologist Jeri Jones returns to present another FUN, fascinating look into our shared geological history. 

Attend in person, or via Zoom. Zoom link sent on request—call 717-762-0373 or email to info@natureandcultureinstitute.org.

In partnership with Franklin Co. Rock & Mineral Club. Geologist Jeri Jones presents a tour of eastern Pennsylvania’s geology. Topics include rocks, minerals and fossils, the Ice Age, cool locations to visit—plus, learn how everything formed over the past one billion years. 

The geology of eastern Pennsylvania covers a span from about a billion years ago when we were part of a supercontinent named Rodinia. Over time, the landmass split apart and an ocean known as the Lapetus formed. 

About 350–150 million years ago, the area experienced continental collision, which formed another supercontinent named Pangaea and broke apart into the world we know today. 

Finally, the Ice Age was the latest chapter written in our geologic history, which created extensive weathering and erosion.

Questions are welcome and samples of minerals and fossils will be available.

The program is free but registration is required. Call 717-762-0373 or email to info@natureandcultureinstitute.org

Jeri will lead a carpool-style field trip exploring local geology on April 9—check it out here!

This program is underwritten in part by Marge Kiersz, Lucinda D. Potter, CPA, and SEK, CPAs & Advisors, and an anonymous donor, in honor of the life and work of Eunice Statler.

Additional support from The Institute’s Today’s Horizon Fund contributors: The Nora Roberts Foundation; The John R. Hershey Jr. and Anna L. Hershey Family Foundation; APX Enclosures, Inc.; and the Carolyn Terry Eddy Family: Carolyn, with daughters Connie Fleagle & Kim Larkin.
