Bay Area Rocks for Kids
What makes up the hills and habitats that surround San Francisco Bay?
Bang, scratch, nick, view, (even chew?) rocks from the hills and crystals from the Bay! Ponder how and where they could have formed -- are those microfossils? Then wonder, how have they been uplifted to form the foundation for all the varied plants and animals -- and buildings! -- that we see today?
Most appropriate for school-aged learners, but ages are welcome. Great for families and scout groups! Closed-toed shoes recommended. Led by geologist Dr. Malcolm Pringle.
Location: Fremont Learning Pavilion (close to 1 Marshlands Road near the Tidelines Trail) at Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge
