Geology Rocks: Tygart Lake

October 6 - October 7

It’s another rockin’ weekend at a WV State Park. This time it’s Tygart Lake State Park that greets state geologists to present a Friday evening program and Saturday walk/hike about the geology of West Virginia.

Have you ever asked ‘Is there gold in these WV hills?’ or “What is an earthquake?” This program is for you. Youth and adults alike may skip a stone on water, but do you know the geology of the Mountain State ? Geology rocks! Join us.

You’ll discover and learn about rocks, minerals and fossils during an evening presentation held at Tygart Lake Lodge (conference room) at 6:30 p.m., Friday, October 6, 2023. The presentation includes some examples of rocks/fossils discussed. The program is free to attend and open to the public. A great program for homeschool youth and budding geologists of any age.

This program is presented by geologists of the West Virginia Geological and Economic Survey and hosted by Tygart Lake State Park staff and Jacob Jackson, Park Naturalist.

A Saturday morning, October 7, 2023 is Rock Hike is planned at 10:00 a.m. Meet at the Nature Center parking lot for a rock talk-and-walk.
