CANCELED -- Foothills Geology Hike for Seniors

 01/26/2022  |  10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
 |  Registration Required

Natural History

This program has been CANCELED due to unsafe travel conditions related to weather. Moderate/Difficult Hike. The Ingleside and Fountain Formations along with the iconic, red slabs of Lyons sandstone give life to the tapestry of landforms we find in many parts of the foothills. Explore how uplift, erosion and time have uncovered these natural beauties and the unique nature these areas hold. Bring along hiking poles and sturdy boots as you hike up the trail with Volunteer Naturalist to observe the mesas and valleys from above.

Maximum Participants: 20

I have had a life-long love of science, teaching, and the outdoors, so I'm very happy to serve as a Volunteer Naturalist. Geology was my first field of study. My working career included software development, leading a small educational nonprofit, and teaching high school science. I served as a Boy Scout leader and robotics coach, and hiked the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine. In 2019 my wife and I retired and moved from Ann Arbor to Longmont.

I got hooked on being in nature as a kid wandering the palmetto scrub and backwaters of west coast Florida in search of critters and fossils. Though a third-generation geologist, I’ve never earned a dime with my geology degree. For 3 years as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Ghana, I taught secondary school geology, chemistry, math, and general science. A second degree in graphic design led to a career in technical and scientific illustration. I have been volunteering as a naturalist since 1976.
