Dinosaurs, Dunes, and Drifting Continents: The Amazing Geologic History of Massachusetts
October 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Tuesday, October 22nd, 2019 – 7:00pm
Wakelin Room, Wellesley Free Library
Professor Richard Little, recognized authority on the geologic history of the Connecticut River Valley, will provide a fast-paced and illustrated program on the geologic processes that built our region. Specific topics will touch on Wellesley’s notable pudding stones (like “Problem Rock”) and focus primarily on the amazing geologic history that has resulted in a landscape unlike the rest of New England. Wellesley’s geologic journey from a tropical location on a super-continent to our current mid-latitude location through tectonic plate collisions and continental drifting that continue to this day will be examined.
