Wednesday WOW – Dig it!: Blackwater Falls
August 3 - August 4
Dig It! Because Geology Rocks! This is a great opportunity to learn about the topography and geology of West Virginia. Just hearing all the names of different sandstones across the Mountain State is amazing information. Geology includes types of rock and why there is rock, why there are fossils, and our oil, gas, salt, and coal resources. Enjoy Geology Rocks! at Blackwater Falls State Park.
