Join Walt Manger and Joe Neal on an informative geology-themed hike on Kessler Mountain!

RockCity2EditedCome on out on Sunday, January 24 from 1-4pm for “A Walk through 25 Million Years on Kessler Mountain.”  Geologist Walt Manger and Joe Neal will lead an easy and informative hike on Kessler Mountain in Fayetteville.  We will hike from the Rock City trailhead to the Shale Barrens with Dr Manger providing geology of Kessler Mountain and the surrounding Ozark Mountains. Joe Neal will point out information about local birds and plants. This fairly easy, roughly 3-mile hike will take approximately 3 hours. There are no steep climbs. Comfortable shoes or boots with a hard sole work well. The program is free and open to the public. You don’t want to miss this unique opportunity to learn about our local geology from a UA-Fayetteville professor who has studied it throughout his career. Hot cider and hot chocolate will be provided after the hike.

Meet at 1 PM at Ozark Smokehouse parking lot (1725 S. Smokehouse Trail Fayetteville, AR 72701). From there we will carpool nearby to Frank Sharp’s house.
