Geology of the Finger Lakes

Geology of the Finger Lakes, will be presented from 2 to 3 p.m. March 16 at Penn Yan Public Library, 214 Main St., Penn Yan. The Finger Lakes region contains some of New York’s most distinctive and beautiful landscapes. What clues about New York’s recent and more ancient geological past can we read from the landforms and rocks we encounter every day? Glaciers produced much of what we see, but rocks underneath the glacial features tell an even older story about ancient tropical seas, volcanoes and mountains on the horizon, armored fish, the very first forests, strange amphibians, and more. About the presenter: “By geological standards of time, David Kendrick was born and grew up in Indiana, earned a B.S. in Geology and Geophysics from Yale and a Ph.D. in Geological Sciences from Harvard, studied rocks and fossils in places like Utah, Montana, Jamaica, the Bahamas, New York, Australia, Sweden, and the Netherlands, and became an Associate Professor of Geoscience at Hobart &Wm Smith Colleges, all in the blink of an eye.” We’re pleased to welcome Dr. Kendrick back for an encore of his extremely popular presentation, featuring some updates and additions! 315-536-6114 www.pypl.org
