The History of Geological Time
- This event has passed.
- February 19 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
The understanding of geological time is a fascinating story – a battle against medieval dogma. Geology’s late renaissance, when compared to astronomy and biology, made the concept of geologic time one of science’s most recent developments. Whereas as some understandings can be traced to one person, geological time was evolved from the studies of many naturalists and geologists who investigated the rocks and fossils of Europe. Park naturalist and paleontologist Alan Goldstein will present this program, free with regular Interpretive Center admission
