Rock out at Hidden Valley Nature Center! Enjoy this guided hike around the preserve with geologist David Pope. The field trip will zero in on HVNC’s fascinating geology, a spectacular piece of Maine landscape.
David Pope grew up rockhounding in New Hampshire’s White Mountains, majored
in geology at St Lawrence University and graduate school (MS Univ. Rhode Island).
He worked as a geochemist at U Maine and the US Geological Survey, then taught
science at Lincoln Academy for twenty years. Since then he has delved into the
local geology, teaching adult education courses and leading field trips on the
subject while rehabbing several antique houses. His enthusiasm and studies of
the local geology culminated in his 2015 book, The Geology of the Pemaquid
Region. The book will be available for $20 at the event.
