We wrote Roadside Geology of Georgia to help spread Earth science understanding in Georgia, and it has been a joy traveling around the state to walk and talk with those who share our interests. The Covid-19 pandemic has put events on pause, but as infection levels come down, subject to social distancing and wearing masks, outdoor programs will be considered. If your organization would like one of us to provide a program, the following information will be helpful. You can reach Dr. Witherspoon at email@example.com and Dr. Gore at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are pleased to accept invitations for talk/walk events. We have done many of these without charging a fee. We are most likely to do this when:
á The host publicizes the event well and invites the public.
á The host does not charge the public beyond regular museum or park admission.
á There is an opportunity for book sales following the event.
á If the host has a gift shop that sells nature books, the book is available there.
á Some overnight accommodation is offered for events more than 100 miles from Decatur.
Dr. Witherspoon, who retired in September 2014 after 17 years teaching K-12 students, their students, and the public at DeKalb County SchoolsÕ Fernbank Science Center, is able to accept occasional invitations to offer workshops and school visits. Pricing, good through May 2019, is $250 per half-day or $400 per full day, plus mileage from Decatur.
