Geology! Rocks. : Twin Falls

June 3 All day

If you like rocks, gravel, sand, boulders, and really old things like meteors and fossils, meet Ken Ashton, a geologist with the West Virginia Geological & Economic Survey. He’ll be at Twin Falls June 3, 2023 with an afternoon hike and an evening geology program indoors.

The first step for this special program is an afternoon hike on the Falls Trail. Meet naturalist Tammy Cooper and Geologist Ken Ashton at the Falls Trail parking area at 1:00PM. This is a great opportunity to see first-hand how water shapes and erodes rock over time, see layers of soils and have a better understanding of all soil horizons start with bedrock. This hike is open to the public and without cost.

The second step is our evening program with Geologist Ashton. This presentation goes beyond Twin Falls and across West Virginia’s geologic story. From coal to shale to fossils, how sand is formed, is there more than sandstone in West Virginia and what about rivers, oil, gas, salt – all part of the geology program. This evening program will be in the Dogwood Room at Twin Falls Lodge at 7:00PM. Open to the public and may be an interest for homeschooled students as well as youth in 4-H or Scouting projects.

A ‘geology rocks’ patch is presented by Naturalist Tammy Cooper to each individual attending this evening program. Questions? Email tammy.d.cooper@wv.gov.
