Geology Walk & Talk 2024

May 19 @ 8:30 am - 11:30 am

- ZAR95.00

Geology related references go back as far as the 4th Century with the mention of fossilized seashells by the Greek philosopher Aristotle but became a more formalized discipline in 1785. It embraces four sciences: maths, physics, chemistry, and biology giving us a reasonable explanation of how the earth works. To best understand what is above, we must also understand what is below.

The Geology of the Earth has a profound impact on everything that sits on its crust. It has literally shaped the world we live in, and even though we are not always aware of it, continues to do so.

There is no one better qualified to help us broaden our knowledge on the fascinating and all-important subject of Geology than Professor Adam Bumby, of the University of Pretoria. With the main focus on what is found in and around the Crocodile River Reserve, atop iconic Koppie Alleen, with it’s breathtaking 360-degree views, we will learn all about the different rocks, their unimaginable ages and the fossilized remains of the first life form on our planet and so much more.
