Fire and Ice: Richard Little Geology Cruise

On Saturday, September 16th at 11:00 and 1:15, join geologist Richard Little on the Heritage Riverboat for another fascinating program.

This relaxing cruise on the Connecticut River will be filled with tales of drifting continents, earthquakes, dinosaurs, glaciers, Lake Hitchcock, and the strange origin of deep riverbed holes; all are part of the creation of our idyllic Valley. Professor Emeritus of Greenfield Community College, Richard Little has published three editions of Dinosaurs, Dunes, and Drifting Continents: The Geology of the Connecticut Valley and created videos about the rise and fall of glacial Lake Hitchcock and the 500 million-year history of the Connecticut Valley. Professor Little continues his passion for geology education through “Fantastic Landscape Tours” to significant geologic areas like the US National Parks and Iceland. Don’t miss this overview of the amazing geology of our area by one of the region’s greatest geology educators. More information about Richard Little’s tours and publications is available at https://EarthView.rocks
