  • Join us for a Geology Walk at Brasstown Bald!


400 million years ago…..that's how we will begin as two authors team up to reveal the geology of the Brasstown Bald area and how it influences plants and animals! Geologist Dr. Bill Witherspoon, co-author of Roadside Geology of Georgia and biogeographer Dr. Leslie Edwards, co-author of Natural Communities of Georgia, will present a slide talk, "A Window through Time: Geology and Nature at Georgia's Highest Summit," followed by a book signing and a walk along the mountain. There will be a table full of hands-on information and activities for guests not attending the program. Pre- registration required. The program will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Please call 706-896-2556 for more information.
