Connecticut may seem tame, but look closely and you will find a state where incredible discoveries about geology, dinosaurs, and wild places have been made for centuries.
Exploring Connecticut’s Natural Wonders, presented on Saturday, September 30 at 10:30 am, at Milford Library, 57 New Haven Ave., tells the stories of our state’s many natural wonders – places where its natural history comes to life – and are easily explored. The program explains how our state’s small size and intriguing past actually make it one of the best places in the world to explore natural history.
With fascinating slides, animations, and video, guidebook publisher Brendan Hanrahan takes you on a tour of places that reveal how continents collided to build local bedrock, where our region was flooded by molten rock, where dinosaurs prowled immense lakes, where the last Ice Age lefts its mark – and the great variety of wild places we have to explore in our state today.
Fall is a wonderful time to get the whole family out exploring – this program will give you ideas for your hikes! Free and open to the public. All are welcome.
