Walks and Talks

Since the book's release in May of 2013, the authors have been responding to invitations all over the state to bring geology to the public. In addition to telling the science behind top nature destinations all over the state, there have been programs on geology's influence on the Civil War, Georgia's gold rush, and the origin of mountain scenery. If there is an opportunity for a geology walk, that is part of the program as well.

You can register for events simply by choosing "Join" at the event listing on Facebook, or by using the form on this page. Registering lets us know how many attendees to expect. We will try to give each attendee who has registered a COOL BILLION-year-old rock or other cool Georgia item.
