Adult class -- Albuquerque's Geological Landscape
Albuquerque's landscape is a snapshot of the geologic past and a record of the dynamic geology that formed our state. Did you know that the Rio Grande, the Albuquerque Volcanoes and the Sandias are all part of the same geological story? Do you want to learn more about where you live and why it looks the way it does? Attend this one-session museum class (choose either May 18 or July 8) and learn about the geology of the greater-Albuquerque area. No prior knowledge of geology is required.
A copy of the Museum's Albuquerque Geoscape Poster (a $10 value) is given to participants.
