Rock 'n Walk - POSTPONED
Presented by GSU Geosciences
Millions of years ago, a massive magma chamber cooled below the ground just outside of what is now Atlanta, never erupting through to the surface. Today, we call it Stone Mountain. Join folks from Georgia State University Geosciences on a hike to explore this unique granite dome, learning about the rock and what makes this spot in Atlanta so special. You’ll also be able to ‘walk’ a Giant Traveling Map of Georgia, explore rock and mineral specimens, ‘track’ dinosaurs, and identify fossils like a paleontologist!
This event is an open ended event - feel free to come any time from 10-2. You can expect to spend about 1.5-2 hours engaged with us. Because of high winds expected, we'll plan for most activities to be at the base of the mountain, but will have regular guided hikes up the mountain that you can join.
This event is free with admission to Stone Mountain Park ($20/vehicle or $40/vehicle for an annual pass).
