"Geology of the Twin Tiers" - April 14th, 2009
Introduction to Rocks and Minerals (Geology 101) - by Marty Borko
April 14, 2009 - 6:30 - 7:30pm at SRAC
Southern tier of New York and northern tier of PA is a unique geological region. What are the sediments that led to the bedrock, including the Marcellus Shale, in the Twin Tiers? Where did the sediment come from and how was the rock formed? How has our surface geology been transformed by glaciations? Answers to these questions will be answered in a slide supported program on April 14. Marty Borko is a retired Professor of Biology and Natural History having last served as Chair of the Biology Department at Orange County Community College; retiring after 35 years of service. All events are held at 345 Broad St, Waverly, NY. Admission is $4 for adults and $3 for SRAC members and children under 18. Exhibit Hall admission is free to all attendees.
