Jamestown, N.Y. - As part of its Summer Learning Series, on Tuesday, Aug. 16, the Audubon Center and Sanctuary is offering "Panama Rocks as a Geologic Window." From 1 to 4:30 p.m., Dan Fitzgerald, who teaches geology and earth science at Jamestown Community College, will use both the classroom and the landscape at Panama Rocks to explain the geology of the Allegheny Plateau.
In a classroom setting at Audubon, Fitzgerald will share some basic concepts that will help participants understand the geology around them. Then the group will journey to Panama Rocks to see all that information revealed through the rocks.
This program is designed for adults. Interested, mature children age 9 and older are welcome if accompanied by an adult. The cost, including admission to Panama Rocks, is $20 for members, $22 for nonmembers, and $12 for children younger than 12.
Registration deadline is Tuesday, Aug. 9. To make reservations, call (716) 569-2345, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or use the on-line form.
All Summer Learning Series programs are made possible in part by a grant from the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation.
