Field Trip to Barrow County (deadline Sept 21)

September 25 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

The Atlanta Geological Society will host a one-day, self-driven field trip from 9 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 25 to highlight the geology of Barrow County, the most eastern county in Metropolitan Atlanta. The trip will begin at 9:00 a.m. at the Fort Yargo State Park visitor center. The trip will be led by AGS Field Trip Coordinator, Fernbank Science Center planetary geologist, and Barrow County native Scott Harris. We will investigate Proterozoic to early Paleozoic metamorphism, Mesozoic magmatism, and a Pleistocene peat bog (incorrectly referred to as “mud volcano” in some media). This is the first in a series of trips to explore the geology of each of the Metro Atlanta counties.
