I’m excited! We’re adding this to our homeschool calendar for February. It’s a great opportunity to learn about local history and geology while getting some exercise. Any other Nashville families planning to attend?
Dr. Molly Miller, Earth and Environmental Science Professor at Vanderbilt University, accompanied by Anne Choquette, a Hydrologist with the U.S. Geological Survey, will lead a two mile walk through Percy Warner’s Mossy Ridge Trail. Participants will be shown major rock formations and learn the history they record. Hear about how Nashville’s landscape was once a Bahamas like paradise and a stagnant ocean bottom thick with dead algae eventually transformed into oil and gas. Don’t miss the chance to chat with the Mayor, learn about nature, meet people and get healthy. Dress for cold weather, bring your camera, and water. Also, wear walking shoes – portions of the trail may be muddy!
Walk will only be cancelled in the case of severe weather, snow or icy conditions.
