Audubon sponsoring geology workshop

By Staff | Mar 28, 2013

The Potomac Valley Audubon Society will offer a workshop on geology highlights of the Eastern Panhandle on Saturday, April 13.

The workshop will held from 8-11 a.m. It will be led by geologist Dennis Coskren and focus on some of the key geological features found in the Panhandle area.

The geology of the area is of great interest. It stretches back to about 360 million years ago, when the Appalachian mountains rose and the rocks that predominate today were formed. This is one of a series of workshops on different natural history topics the Society will sponsor this year.

The workshops are elective courses for individuals enrolled in the Society’s Potomac Valley Master Naturalist Program. However, each session is also open on a space-available basis to members of the general public who are interested in learning more about certain aspects of natural history but do not want to commit to a full course of Master Naturalist instruction.

Enrollment for each workshop is limited, and pre-registration is essential.

To register and get more information, go to the Society’s website at www.potomacaudubon.org or contact Ellen Murphy at 304-676-8739 or ellen@potomacaudubon.org.

The cost of attendance for each workshop will be $10 for Master Naturalist Program members and trainees and $15 for PVAS members or members of the public.
