General Description

This is a two-day workshop that explores rock formations and karst features on the upper portion of the Buffalo National River. The first day of the workshop, we travel to Lost Valley to see how a stream has carved an interesting path into the underlying limestone. Next, we look at the relative age of rock layers, an unconformity, and fossils in Ponca Quarry. Finally, we will conduct a gravel bar experiment at Steel Creek on the Buffalo National River. On day two, we hike to Whitaker Point (aka Hawksbill Crag) to see a distinctive sandstone bluff in the Boston Mountains.
