Life Long Learners Will Learn About Backyard Geology

Submitted by on April 3, 2014 – 3:54 pm

Northern Essex Community College’s Life Long Learning Program will host Bill Hammond of Haverhill in a presentation on Backyard Geology. This presentation will be held on Thursday, April 17, at 2pm, on the college’s Haverhill Campus in the David Hartleb Technology Center, 100 Elliott St. Admission is $2.

“Haverhill has many preserved geological sites where you can see glacial geologic features and processes,” said Hammond.  “In this program, we’ll explore geologic concepts and I’ll show backyard examples. The goal is to understand the importance of physical geology and its relevance to our everyday lives.”

Hammond has been mining for rocks and crystals in New England for over 30 years. He has also done extensive glacial geological research on Haverhill.

Life Long Learning is a program of lectures, study groups, and trips for adults. All programs are open to the public.
