Geology Field Trip

Explore geologic features in the Plymouth, NH area including Sculptured Rocks in Groton and Livermore Falls in Plymouth/Holderness/Campton. We will visit both sides of the river. Learn what formed these features and how you might introduce these geologic gems to students.

Location: We will be beginning and ending at the Dunkin Donuts on Route 25 in Plymouth. Some up and down walking is required.

About the leader: Dr. Larry Davis is Professor Emeritus of Earth and Environmental Sciences University of New Haven. Dr. Davis is a geologist whose interests include natural hazards, groundwater, applying geology to land planning and resource management, public perception of “nature”, and the hydrology of karst (cavernous) terrains. His research examines karst hydrology on San Salvador, Bahamas. Other projects included studies of contaminant clean-up and historical preservation at an old Vermont copper mine, inventorying natural history features useful for teaching in Connecticut State Parks, and analyzing whether environmental education produces “nature-literate” children. For the past 50 summers he has been Director of Nature Programs and Teaching at Camp Pemigewassett(“Pemi”) in Wentworth, NH. The stops scheduled for this trip were regulars on field trips in his Geomorphology and Field Geology classes at the University of New Haven (and also for his campers at Pemi!)

Registration Required: $10/NHEE members and $20/non-members
