Bucknell geology hosts open house
Posted: April 18, 2006
LEWISBURG, Pa. — The geology department at Bucknell University will host an open house April 22 from 7 to 9 p.m. in the O'Leary Center.
According to Dan Heuer, Bucknell senior geology major and geology outreach coordinator, activities include displays of common and obscure rocks, minerals and fossils. "The focus of the open house is to examine how geology is influential in daily life," he said.
Geology faculty, staff and students will be on hand to answer questions.
"If you have a few rocks, minerals or fossils that you would like to be identified, bring them and a geology expert will identify them for you," said Mary Beth Gray, associate professor and chair of the geology department at Bucknell.
Children under 10 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to the open house, which will have other activities geared toward elementary school children.
The O'Leary Center for Geology and Psychology is located on Seventh Street. For more information, call 577-1146.
