Join VDOT geologist, Brett Waller, for a journey along the Blue Ridge Parkway across the Shenandoah Valley toward Staunton to examine the oldest rocks of the Blue Ridge and Appalachian Valley. You’ll learn to “read” the history of the Appalachians as recorded in the rocks of Nelson and Augusta Counties. Discover the relevance of past geologic events to contemporary questions such as: How did the Blue Ridge form? How did early settlers exploit these geologic features to improve their lifestyle? Interest in natural history and enthusiasm is all that is required to answer these and other interesting questions. Dress for weather. Bring money for lunch and water.
