Forty thousand years ago, glaciers carved out Narragansett Bay, making fantastical formations, uncovering ancient rock, and leaving rounded cobbles that are perfect for stone walls. Renowned professor of geology Roger Thorson will give you a new perspective on the landscape, discussing its natural history and the impact of humans over time. Join us for his introductory talk, and then walk to view the rocks and stone walls in this ruggedly beautiful place by the bay.
