KINGSTON — The Kingston Conservation will host a Geology Walk at the Valley Lane (South Kingston) Town Forest on Sat., September 21 at 9:00 a.m. (Rain date TBA). Meet at the South Kingston Town Forest trailhead at the end of Valley Lane, off Hunt Road.

Leading the hike will be Ph.D. geologist, Charles Kerwin. Dr. Kerwin has been a professor of undergraduate Geology and Mineralogy at Keene State College for almost 20 years. He has mapped over 500 sq miles of southern NH bedrock for the U.S.G.S, and frequently lectures at local schools, libraries and at the Harris Center in Hancock NH. Dr. Kerwin’s Ph.D. thesis was on the rocks of this area, so we are fortunate to have an expert in our local geology.

If you find our geological past fascinating and would like to learn more about the fault lines, the metamorphic, igneous and sedimentary rocks of Kingston, please join us on this very special hike!

Please BYO water bottles and tick and bug repellant. The only requirement is scientific curiosity and the ability to walk an occasionally hilly two-mile-long established trail.
