NORTH SHORE ROCK & MINERAL CLUB
 
The Ice Age Is Still With Us 
 
Join club member and naturalist Fred Surowiec as he explains how the Ice Age shaped and formed New England. Learn how millennia of glacial advances and retreats created the landforms and topography of North America and our own area. Learn what classic glacial landforms are such as: drumlins, eskers, kames and moraines and how to identify them in the field. Also learn about the many fascinating Pleistocene animals that shared the world with our early ancestors. Biography: Fred Surowiec has been a naturalist and teacher at Mass Audubon for the last 10 years and was formerly on the Education Staff of the Harvard Museum of Natural History and the Roger Williams Natural History Museum. He has been a science writer for Salem Press of Pasadena. He graduated from the University of Rhode Island with a Geology degree.

 “Petrified Wood"

 

How does wood petrify and how long does it take. Also what does the wood tell us about the weather and age of the wood before it began to petrify. If anyone has a piece, I encourage you to bring it to "Show and Tell" for everyone to see and touch.

 

See everyone there!
