Charnwood’s 600 million years of Geology

Charnwood Roots Project is hosting an FREE geology workshops offering you the chance to glimpse into Charnwood’s 600 million year past.  Open to everyone who is volunteering on the Charnwood Project.
 
The rich array of ancient rocks present in Charnwood Forest, a tantalising glimpses into its life as a volcanic island, a mountain range, a desert and even a seabed!
 
Experienced geologist Gill Weightman will be leading each session, during which you’ll get the opportunity to handle an assortment of rocks that are Charnwood born and bred; each with their own tale to tell. At the end of the session you’ll be a dab hand at rock identification – this will be particularly useful for those wanting to get involved with fieldwalking or to help with our landscape surveys next year.
