Geologic Field Trip on Mt. Diablo
Saturday, November 10 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Join Save Mount Diablo Docent and geologist Martin Steinpress for a caravan tour of Mount Diablo’s amazing rock formations. The geologic field trip will look at several stops with recent Quaternary landslides, deep marine radiolarian chert, high pressure-low temperature blueschist facies rocks, and greenstones. Martin will explain these features in layman’s terms and answer your questions. This trip will need 5 drivers included in the sign up (if the 20 person maximum is reached). The hiking will be mainly the easy Mount Diablo rim trail. You will need hats, comfortable shoes, and your own water and sack lunch for the summit.
