Richard Little will lead this tour of Franklin County’s unique and exciting geologic history illustrating the creation and breakup of Pangea as we travel from Erving to the Berkshires along Rte. 2.   You will have the opportunity to collect magnificent rocks from all three rock origins: Igneous, Metamorphic, and Sedimentary.  Short walks along roadsides, dirt roads, and trails with roots, rocks, and minimal elevation gain.  Transportation not provided. Rain date, Sunday April 26.

The Pioneer Valley Institute has been bringing programs to the public since 1989—resources designed to explore the rich and unique character of the Connecticut River Valle and its past, present and future. We offer the Valley's only varied series of workshops, field trips and lectures relating to the Valley. All programs sponsored by PVI are open to the public for free or at a modest cost. Please note that cash is not accepted for event registration.
